Last week I started to decorate a journal.
I spent ages on her face, stitching and painting and stitching and painting some more...but in the end I just wasn't happy with it.
I remember reading a really interesting article by a designer- maker, who said that no matter how long something takes to make, if it's not right it has to go.
So I made her a new face and a velvet crown of gold.
Her skirt lifts up!
But there is a hidden message in her undergarments...
'Tis both an act of treason
to look in a secret journal
and to peek at the Queen's petticoat'.
So be warned!
Here's the first page,
and the book mark.
