For a long time I've wanted to personalise my filofax. I've just got a new, smaller one, and although the red cover reflects my personality, I was determined to make it more 'me' inside too.
I resisted the use of the sewing machine as that would have made for a lumpy surface for writing on, and went for simple collages. I love the combination of white and cream so limited myself to this palette. I may add some colourful inserts at a later date though.
I adore this bird cage from the 'Free as a Bird' plate, it's so Victorian, and a great size! I combined it with images from the Ephemera 1 plate, which I note is on offer at the minute - and it has a British post card image [Something tells me 'post card' may be a popular image to use in the near future!]
I love how the numbers from the tape measure image look inside the clock face. There's a postmark in there too! I just masked the outside of the clock and stamped the images in the middle.
The 'post card' image seemed rather appropriate for the first of my address dividers! The butterflies and dragonfly feature on the 'Insects' plate.
My filofax is starting to come together, and certainly reflects some of the images I love :)
