Recipe Journal

 I felt like altering a plain spiral journal I've had laying around for a long time. I decided to make a recipe journal with this adorable Elisabeth Bell image from Belles 'n Whistles. Perfect for a recipe book. This little project took me a long, long time. I wanted to make sure it was really durable and would hold up to the occasional drip or splatter from the kitchen. I coated everything with a thin layer of matter sealer to protect it. I had the whole book apart so I could really get in all the cracks and crevices.

The patterned paper has that real antique feel to it, so I did a lot of aging and a bit of distressing to it. I wanted coordinating papers for the inside covers (didn't have any) so I stamped a damask pattern on Ocean Tides cardstock. I'm very happy with it and I think it would make a wonderful gift! And if you're interested, you can buy it from my Etsy shop! A fun, if time consuming project that I really enjoyed.
