Lace Journal Pages for Sox!!

Okay, so as I had said previously, I am hooked on this new craft - lace journals.  I am not very good at it yet and find it a bit daunting but I really love it.

My dear friend Sox - the lace journal QUEEN - invited me to join into my very first lace journal project!  Of course as always I have TONS of stuff to use and am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing!  I feel quite overwhelmed and wish I was better at this.  But the only way to get better is to practice right???

These pages are for non other than SOX!!  Pressure is immense!!  LOL!!!

The spread folds in half and there will be other pages to go between them.

This is the two page spread - "the front" -
I may have gone a little over board!!  I usually don't like so much "stuff" on my work but I couldn't seem to stop!  As Sox would say - it's over the top1

This is the front page:
This page has a nice big pocket.

The "back" page:
These are the back pages:
This is an antique doille that was the EXACT size of Sox's journal!  The age stains adds a nice touch I think to the page.  These will just stay this way so that Sox can add what she wants when she gets it back.

Whew!  Okay.... will get better... but for now I'm happy with what I did!


  1. I think you did a fabulous job! I have never heard of a lace journal before...and I LOVE the idea!! I don't think you need any more's amazing!

  2. Absolutely perfect. See you had nothing to worry about

  3. Man I love this , I wished i had some of these . they are so beautiful..... hey I am looking for a scan of a snake for the OSA swap and I am not having any luck,,,, No you have one all I have is a 2x2 one no g=big one .....


  4. I love what you did. Beautiful. More is always more with these books, for sure!!

  5. I don't think there can ever be 'too much' on fabric lace books! this is BEAUTIFUL! I love the whites and ecru with the smattering of salmony pink. Looking forward to seeing more!
