Quick update

Busy, busy. My journal workshop this Saturday is booked out which is wonderful, I have three people on the waiting list for the next one.
One of the time consuming parts of the class is cutting up fabric for the trim on the spine, so I've been busy cutting up fabric and putting them into packs, colour co-ordinating them with some very old buttons that I have, along with beads and charms. These will be available for purchase on the Saturday.





These are a couple of pages from my journal made from old manilla folders. The front of the post card is advertising a fruit and vegetable festival, it's very colourful.

Your journal is beautiful. I really love how you have a talent of being able to put together so many colour combos and textures and make it look so harmonious. If I try to do that it ends up looking like a bad headache and a terrible mess!

How did your workshop go? I be that lots of fun and creativity was consumed.
Love the little packs that you have made up, I'm sure that they sold like hotcakes.
