I made this journal as part of my guest DT work for Gecko Galz, but didn't get round to showing it till now.
The papers used for the covers, inside and out, the tag pockets and the little illustrations in between are all from Gecko Galz collage sheets. I used cardboard from an old painting pad for the covers, and distressed the edges, after gluing on the papers, with DI in wild honey, rusty screw and Inka gold. I tied the book together with ribbons, as I noticed after I had punched the holes, that I didn't have wires in the right size. This is a great alternative, as it gives a much softer finish and the book always opens flat. I have just shown a few of the pages here, so as not to make the post too long.

On my walk through the park I discovered lots of mushrooms /toadstools.
This is the biggest puffball I have seen there till now, much larger than a football!
I think they are edible, but I left it there!
And there were lots of ink-caps in various stages of growth and decay:
I love the view from above, it looks like an UFO!
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
