i got g's garden journal all caught up today. isn't it cute? i'm so excited! usually i get things done (several months) after the fact, so it's nice to have something that i'm working on that's current.
i made it from the 7 gypsies portfolio in the may project kit. even though i kept all the pages super flat (which was hard for me!), the closure bowed quite a bit, but i found this bull dog clip in a kitchen drawer and it worked perfectly.
the pages are loose, so i've numbered each page with a tiny dot black alpha so they can be kept in order.
the pages were made with my leftover bits from the june kit. when i had scraps that were too small for a page, i pieced them together with old book binding tape from my stash to make them the right size. i really like the patchwork effect.
i think we are done for a few weeks now. we probably won't have anything exciting to add until more of the vegetables start flowering and then producing. i hope we have some success stories to record!
here are the bits i have leftover. i'm going to put these in a bag to save for later in the summer when we want to add to the garden journal. i'm really delighted with the vintage blue horse notepad i picked up for the journaling and i also snagged that vintage watermelon seed packet today, because we have a watermelon planted and really hope we get some fruit from it!
and it's a good thing i got that project tidied up and the tray it was on emtied to make room for this beauty. i am SO excited about the july kits. it is my favorite color combo - soft blues, greens, yellows, and pinks - and there are clouds! i also picked up the vintage opera collar supports and have big plans for using them with my paper tray ink tiny tag dies. happy scrappies tomorrow!
