Sunday with Tea and Stitching

The best times for me is having tea while the Autumn weather is trying to become winter. As the tea is bring shipped, easily I can forget about the snow coming.

I took the dog for a walk and came in to boil some water for my afternoon Sunday tea. The other day I was gifted a present of various teas and a mug.

In the various teas were chamomile and lavender tea, which sounded like a good choice for this lazy day.

The nice part of this tea is the tea bag had a quote attached to it.

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.

William Shakespeare

As to my stitching, it is coming along.

Art Journal Cover

There’s a few things that I want to do in my free time but never have the energy or amount of time needed to concentrate on it. The two things I have been trying to work on is learning French and working in an art journal. So why not combine them!

This post is about creating a journal cover that reflects what the journal is about.

Supplies Needed

  • Journal
  • Cardstock paper
  • Scissors
  • X-acto knife
  • Ruler
  • Glue stick
  • Mod podge
  • Brush
  • Pencil
  • Gel pens
  • Markers
  • Magazine photos or any photo

Step one cut cardstock paper the size of the journal

Step two cut out a photo to glue onto the journal

Step three add washi tape on edges for decoration.

Step four, write a journal title, mine is: mon journal fran├žais, then mod podge the cover to adhere the photos or magazine photos onto the cover.

Lastly, take glue stick and glue the first page to the cover. This will cover the back side of the cover.

And that’s how I made my journal cover. I kept it simple with only a few supplies.
