Very latest Journal

This is the really large journal finished at last and about to go on my Etsy store. It has lots of fabric pages, felted embellishments, countless stitching, jewellery embellishments, pages and pages of my decorated papers, original art and prints of my artwork. It can be used to journal in, write your inspirational thoughts, poetry or affirmations, add photos to or be kept as it is. I love making these, they become addictive. I've been commissioned to make two more so I can't wait to get started on them.




The cover is machine, free stitching with three felted pieces turned into my lollipop trees.

















This is just a selection of some of the pages and the type of work in the book.
Now off to start my new ones.

This is the most intriguing book. I love the earthiness of it. Who wouldn't love to write daily thoughts in this beautiful tome? Wonderful.

Fat, wild and gorgeously scrumptious! Everything a journal should be Ro. I wouldn't dare to write or draw in it - it's perfect just the way it is. Happy journal making.

Love the yummy covers with the felted details, that is so awesome. I think I need to try to add something felted to something sewn too soon! And the journal pages - yum yum yum!

I know I keep saying it but I would love to get my hands on one of your journals, to feel it and drink in all the colours. The cover is absolutely wonderful and the felted pieces have added a new dimension to your work.

Beautiful journal Ro...I just love all of the detail and colours.

The lollipop trees with your felted circles look amazing. What a gorgeous cover.

Looking forward to seeing you soon (and maybe this journal in real life???? or will it be already gone?)

You have excelled yourself again Ro! Your new journal is so inspirational with your own little touches like the sample colour chart etc. You have inspired me to make my own which is coming to completion at this stage - only a couple of pages to go then putting it all together - Thanks heaps for being instrumental in getting me going! Your workspace probably looks a bit like mine at present!
