Creative Stitch Alchemy Mini-Journal: Unfolding – Putting it all Together

The “Journey” Creative Stitch Alchemy Project is now free when you join Creative Art’n’Soul Journaling. You can find details here.

In this week’s session of the Creative Stitch Alchemy Mini-Course: Unfolding …
we’re now ready to assemble the mini-journal.

After spending the last four weeks creating the pages for our mini-journal, all that’s left is to assemble them by glueing them onto a piece of paper.

And now the mini-journal is complete.

Creating these mini-journals is a process, and with each new mini-journal the process is different. Through thoughtful journaling, and mindful stitching, a story emerges that reveals a little more about ourselves. Perhaps it’s a whole new story, or maybe it’s an old story told in a new and different way.

It could be a very personal story intended only for our eyes, or a story that’s inspiring and one which we’re happy to share with others. My stories always tend to be quite personal and filled with sacred symbolism.

The Front Cover

I always like to finish my mini-journals by wrapping them with a length of decorative fiber and little charms. This is a symbolic way to keep my story safe and treasured.

I would love to live like a river flows carried by the surprise of its own unfolding.

I love creating beautiful and unusual hidden pockets …

Back Cover

The back cover ends the story and is stitched using a contemplative stitch. A small meditation.
