Irish Cross Celtic Polymer Clay JournalsI am a great fan of the Celtic culture. I've been to Ireland several times, have written a book on Irish romantic customs, and love Irish music. I enjoy having journals with Irish themes to them.
This Irish Cross journal was created with grey granite polymer clay, which I put black clay around the edges of. I ran it through the pasta machine. Next I took a grey Irish Cross charm, from a charm set, and pressed it into the top left. Then I made a grid of alternating black and grey rectangles and put it on the center. I prssed a butterfly stamp into this, to provide a subtle butterfly pattern. I carved out the holes on the left before baking.
For the insides, I began with sheets of 3.4" x 3.4" memo paper, colored light blue. I have a Swingline hole punch that is great for creating two holes evenly without any fuss. Then comes the connection. These brads are from Michael's fabric store.
I hand curled a stretch of wire into a spiral for the bottom right corner, it's a signature I like to put on my journals.
