Nature Journal

My sis came down this week end.  We spent the day in the art room.  Had a great time.  She finished a journal she was working on.  I purchased a nature journal tutorial from Dawn at The Feather Nest.  I worked on making a journal this weekend and finally finished it up today.  This is what I came up with.


The front and back of the journal is covered with fabric and embellished with a vintage photo transfer of a nest, framed in a circle that came out of an old radio.  I attached twigs, a tiny acorn and feather.  The journal is tied together with vintage fabric.


I added a pocket to this page, then made a tiny note pad from old scrapbook paper, the cover is canvas with a vintage nest photo and nest embroidered under it.  The small card with the bird is from an old game. These will be tucked in the pocket.





There are 16 pages all together counting front and back.  I  loved making the journal.  Think I will try some others with different themes.  I will be listing this in my Etsy shop.

Have you noticed the days are getting longer?  Daylight Savings time starts in March, Yeah!  It has been a very mild winter but I will still be glad when Spring gets here.  Some of my flowers and my miniature peach tree are budding out.  It is too soon for that to happen, hope it doesn't hurt them.  Time for bed, have a great week.

Hugs Jackie

Hello Jackie
I think this is such a beautiful little bird journal. Love all the different textures you have used and the lovely tonings and bird images.
We are moving into longer days with less sun and later sun rises in the mornings but to enjoy all seasons is a true blessing!
Love and hugs,
Suzy

Dear Jackie
You've made such a special Nature Journal.
I love everything birds, feathers, nests, eggs and twigs.
You've added your special collection of all these bits just as the birds hunt and gather to build their little nests!!
I really love the journal too with the ledger paper. Did you make it from scratch as well?
The circle piece from an old radio is a wonderful addition!

All your journals are inspiring Jackie.
love
Shane
