In honor of Kara's birthday, my sons girlfriend, I made her a totally sweet journal,
with "pages" made from blue jean pockets!
I used pockets from 3 pairs of jeans, making 6 pocket pages. I printed photos of the couple on canvas and added those in between pocket pages, as below.
I distressed and inked the edges of the canvas, doodled or stamped on the edges,
and added lines to the back for journaling.
Below are examples of the jounaling tags. Some are stamped with positive affirmations,
or just lined for future thoughts or to record events, travels, etc...
I painted the "backsided" of the pocket, some are smooth and plain for journaling,
others are textured, with stamps, or as below, I added a pretty pink linen handmade flower
with vintage buttons as centers.
Here you see I also added a few of the tiny pockets from the front pockets of the jeans also...
Now...what am I gonna make with all the left over blue jeans???
Happy Fathers Day to ALL the Great Dads I Know!
Happy Birthday Kara!
