My new addiction, Cartonnage . . .

took me to a new place this weekend.  I made a book instead of a box.  It's not perfect but I think it turned out quite nicely!!

I used a pale blue linen parchment for the pages

I made it for a friend of mine who has stayed home for the most part this entire year+ of Covid.  She told me she has been doing a lot of journaling so I thought this would be perfect for her.  Plus she loves Kaffe Fassett fabrics and I thought this would make her happy!! 

Next, I get to make a custom box for my younger brother who wants a box to keep his photos and mementos from his trip to Paris and Italy a couple of years ago!!

Looks stunning, and so professional!!
Do you have some sort of "French" fabric for Kelly's box? I know I've seen some recently--but where?
