Stephanie - School Book

School Book
By: Stephanie Garbett

I decided to make my daughter a journalling book about her secondary school she will be attending next year. I think this will be treasured for a long time as she will be able to do her own journalling to preserve her own memories

3 stain the pages using chalk cat eye ink add a little paint splodges for more effect to torn pages
