We all have thoughts, feelings, and experiences that we want to preserve forever—and a journal makes the perfect keepsake. This inspiration-packed guide, with beautiful watercolor art throughout, offers a wealth of creative ideas for creating attractive journals from scratch as well as embellishing store-bought ones. The 21 creative projects range from a seasonal journal that features stunning handmade papers decorated with natural items (such as twigs and leaves) to a lovely book made from travel postcards that opens like a fan. Other exquisite suggestions include an accordion-style booklet for writing down all the must-remember things your kids say, a romantic journal, and a sweet little spiral-bound book for collecting favorite handed-down recipes.
