Yes, another journal

Ok, so I'm on a roll. When I get into something, I get into it. I finished this one Friday night and I've already worked on some pages. The cover is made of a recycled photo album I got at goodwill.


Sorry it's a little unfocused. Edges are duct tape.


And here are the pages I've been working on...

Making journals

I'm in a journal making mood! I just finished a journal using an old hard cover book. I took the book block out and collaged the cover. The innerds are made of drawing paper and I embellished some of them with small pictures or stitching. This journal is a gift for someone to write in, not necessarily for visual journaling. I used several coats of varnish on the cover which gives it that shiny and hard surface.

I got so into making this journal that I signed up for Mary Ann Moss' Full Tilt Boogie class to learn how to make several other types of journals. Fun!!

Here is the front:

What are you working on?

Art Journal flip

Here is a look at my first art journal I started. It's not complete but I'm tired of waiting for that day. Hope you enjoy!
