i found an arrow template from crafter's workshop, but didn't get one ordered in time. so i created my own using my silouhette. as i was taking out some of the arrows, i loved how some didn't come off, so i left it that way. the back cover was my "experiement" with the stencil. it worked much better on the front cover.
i loved the leftover arrows, so i mixed some gloss multi-medium with some pink paint and painted them. made them a little glossy. then i thought it needed a little something more, so i outlined a few of the arrows randomly. can't wait to get the inside pages done each week!!
i found some canvas the other day at the store. i was going to try and make another journal. now i'm super excited because my husband got me an awesome present for my birthday, a sewing machine. whenever we have a gift giving occasion, we either tell the other what to get or just get our present our selves, then pretend the other got it for us. we aren't very good at surprises. but he got this present all on his own it was a complete surprise. and i love it!! so now i can make my own journal without borrowing my mom's sewing machine! and i can try some sewing on cards that i think is so cute!!
