Biggest journal yet

I've been busy assembling and working on the cover of my biggest journal ever. This is a commission that I've been working on for quite a few months. Just as I think I might have finished I find something else to add. Hopefully it will all be completed by next week.


These are some of the pages.


Another side view.


This is the cover. I'll have more photos when it's all complete.


I've also been making felt, it will have lots of stitching added to it.


A close up of the circles.

Now back to my journal. Thanks for visiting.

Your journals are usually large Ro but this does "take the cake"!
I love all the rich textural felting - so soft and colourful. Your client will be over the moon! This is no mean feat and a true work of art!
Good on you!
