I had an epiphany last night! I've been wanting to make personalized journals. I've tried the monogramed journal, but it looks too plain for my tastes. I don't think I'd like to make them over and over. Saturday I picked up some printer paper in hopes my husband would sketch some things and we could sell some prints on Etsy. I soon realized that we don't have time for that and I may have wasted money on glossy photo paper. So my need to use the things I have kicked in and I had a thought... why not make journals with photos on the front! I can have people send me a photo and I'll make the journal with the photo! So I frantically worked today to finish a journal for the trunk show we had in the Etsy labs! Here is a photo of my daughter before I worked on the pic:
After I worked on the pic:
There's not a huge difference. Just enough to soften up the picture and make it look cuddley. The baby was hugging it after I made it. She is so cute! Here's the finished journal:
I am going to LOVE seeing all the cool photos people send for me to make their very own journal!
