A journal! The way I got from a brooch to a journal was interesting! I thought a brooch would be fun but then I saw these Prima papers. The collection is called The Stationer's Desk. I fell in love with it. The colors are so rich and the designs are so interesting with pens, pencils, ink bottles, all the things a stationer would use incorporated into sprays of roses. I had been wanting to merge my beading with my paper for a long time and suddenly I had a way to bring the two together. The ribbon and the paper collection were a perfect match!! I decided to embroider a corner piece for the cover of a journal. I love seeing metal components being used on journal covers and I've thought bead embroidered components would work too! I realized I could use a Tim Holtz pen nib in the design and I had one that said journal on it! Everything was falling into place! I knew I was on the right path.
I'm having a lot of trouble with my computer right now so I'm going to show you the pictures and not
give you a lot of commentary. I hope you visit Tanya's blog and hop over to the other blogs.

Thank you for visiting. Hopefully my computer problems will be fixed quickly and I'll be back here soon! Have a wonderful day!
