Ladybug Nature Polymer Clay Mini-Journals

I love nature, and I often try to have my jewelry and polymer clay creations have an organic look to them. I really enjoy it when my journals have a natural aspect to them.

Ladybug Polymer Clay Journal

This Ladybug journal was created with black polymer clay. I ran it through a pasta machine. I used a dragonfly texture stamp to give a subtle texture to the background. Next, I made an oval of red clay and lay it on top, then pressed a ladybug stamp into it. I like having the stamp "fall off" the edge of the color I'm stamping into. 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 red. I used a paper cutter to cut it down to only 3" square. 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.
