Stab Bound Journal

Afternoon lovely bloggers,

today I would like to share a small journal I have made.  I have been wanting to have a go at this binding technique for ages and finally found a bit of time to do so........






Lol, apologies for most of the photos, it is so very dull here today!!

Products used - scrap mountboard, Docraft acrylic paint and metallic pen, Paperartsy Fresco paint, scrapbook letters, Viva Decor script stamp and Inca Gold, Bo Bunny texture stamp, gold embossing powder, scrap of mulberry paper, waxed linen thread, crackle accents and last but by no means least, Tando Creative's amazing flower and arrow minis.

The internal papers have been pre-decorated using acrylics and DI's, TCW stencils have been used in places.  Ha ha, decided this was the best option as stab bound books will not open completely flat so a little more difficult to decorate once bound together!!!!!!!!

Huge apologies too for the lack of explanation but I would be here all day ha ha ha!

I am going to enter this for the current Tando Creative challenge which is flowers this month, cheeky maybe I know but I have used some flowers??!!  If you fancy a peek at the challenge please pop on over here.

Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to, so very much appreciated.

Huge hugs

Dawn x x x x

Great journal Dawn, you are so good at making albums and the like. I adore my little one and the round robin ones too. Getting close to receiving ours back after the 1st round - how exciting. BJ

I love your little journals Dawn - you are so clever. I would love to learn how to do signatures and binding.
Love the cover too. The letters look fab.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
