B is for book and birdcage

My swaps for the crafting passionz birdcage and junk journal swap. The journal is for my partner Jude. I used lace I brought from the thrift store to cover the front, it is the same lace I tea dyed in a previous post. The inside of the book has quite a few mixed up elements with no real theme in keeping with the junk journal idea and all the pages are bound by hand. I used lace binding technique by Cynthialoowho to bind all the pages. To be honest, it may be a fragile binding for the journal but hopefully will stand up to wear and tear of use.

The birdcage tag I used Marianne Creatable die for the birdcage. The stamp is by Flonz, which I colored by hand, using a watercolor technique. Each one colored is the same coloring but of course slightly different as it is done by hand. The chain for the birdcage is a thrift store broken necklace. I added flowers and feathers to finish the tag off.
