A few Journals
Just recently I have been on an on-line course with the most excellent Sue Bleiweiss.
This class was Journal Making for the Fibre Artist.
As usual I found Sue's class informative, clear to follow, fun and absorbing.
These are the first 3 journals I made on the class.
The first measures 9ins high and 8ins wide when closed.
There are three signatures each with a pocket on the front of each to hold tags or found goodies. Inside are decorated pages. Some stamped and some with stickers or printed images.
I have started to use this one for my patchwork class and the pocket at the front holds the templates for my current project.
The second journal is actually a sketchbook.
It measures 9ins high and 12ins wide when closed.
There are pockets inside the front and back covers to hold pens, pencils and paintbrushes.
I used watercolour paper for the pages.
It is bound with binding rings so pages can be replaced easily.
The third is made like a scrapbook album and would make a wonderful gift with photos mounted inside.
I used asian type fabric and used a chop stick and beads as embellishments to the binding.
Inside used handmade papers, vellum and hand painted papers.
There are 5 journals on the course. I am starting my last one today.
I will show you number 4 and 5 later this week ;0)
