Your Paper Pantry Fictional Character Journal Swap

Hi Everyone ~ OMG! it has been a super long time since I have posted anything. Shame on me! LOL! I truly hope all of you have been doing great. I have been working on lots of projects I just haven't taken the time to post anything. I decided to join Your Paper Pantry and I did my first swap. Ellen B was our wonderful host. She also has a blog site and she is amazing! Ellen's blog is the women's waiting room. The swap was to choose your favorite fictional character and then you were teamed up with a swap partner. My partner's favorite fictional character was Miss Jane Marple. Agatha Christie is the author of the Miss Marple Mystery series. So what I decided to do was to use an actual book and my bind it all to make the journal. There are 12 books in the series so I used the cover of each book to separate the pages. I saw the hidden bind it all binding at  Sari Hanninen Youtube channel. Sari has some wonderful videos and projects.  It work out well, actually better than I thought. I did use a 1 inch wire. I also coffee dyed all of my papers. That was quite and experience had coffee everywhere, but it was fun and smelled good. LOL! I use lots of different products from Stampin UP, Tim Holtz, stamps from dollar bin at Michaels and so many more. I am sure you will be able to pick them out. Also I have to tell you that Tim Holtz's new acrylic paints are fantastic!!!!!! I used them throughout the journal. I use them for stamping, painting objects, paper anything. I even used the paint to paint tags and they are awesome, if I do say so myself. LOL! The other new item I challenged myself with is doing a video. Yes, a video on Youtube. I will put the video at the end of the pictures of some of the pages. To see the whole album you will have to watch the video. I would also like to thank all of you who have stopped by while I was MIA. Thanks!!!!!


Here is my video hope you all like it. Miss Marple's Mystery Journal.
