A5 landscape campervan journal and slipcase

Just added another finished journal and slipcase to my Etsy shop  I used this fabulous material I bought on a recent trip to the Lake District.  It features images of campervans against a black background.  I teamed it up with some vibrant orange leather-effect fabric on the spine, and on the edges of the slipcase.

Fabric shopping in Chorlton

Spent a wonderful day on Friday in Chorlton perusing the aisles of Leon's Fabric Superstore, like a kid in a sweetshop.  The weather was also fabulous - unlike today, which has seen a constant downpour of rain.  After spending about an hour in this wonderful Aladdin's Cave of a shop, it dawned on me that I was going to have to make a purchase, but the choice of fabric was just breathtaking.  Eventually settled on two beautiful lengths of  fabric, which have provided inspiration for my next bookbinding projects.  Watch this space!
