Journal has a new home

The journal I've been making, my largest ever, is now in it's new home. I enjoyed ever minute of the process and am soon about to start some smaller ones for my etsy, first though I have to complete another order for a junk journal, it's all assembled, just waiting for it's covers. I'll post photos when it's complete. Here's some more shots of the 'big' journal.


This is the cover and spine.


I created a pocket inside the cover with a piece of embellished felt, I then added one of my owls.


These pages are similar to what I will be teaching in Sydney next year, see here.


As are these.


and these.

I also have a workshop coming up at home this weekend. I will be teaching the foam printing plates again. We will be printing on tissue paper and also on fabric. I made some more foam plates and did some fabric printing on calico with them. There are still a couple of vacancies if anyone wishes to attend, just email me for details.

Printing onto fabric.

Next time I hope to have some photos on my new entrance into my studio. I can now access my studio from my work room where I teach my classes. All of the students who attend my classes at home know how I've been hanging out for a doorway to connect the two rooms. Previously I had to go up and down stairs to get from one to the other.

I'm sure your journal will be happy and much loved in it's new home. If I could afford the air fare and accommodation I'd take up one of those places on your course! I bet you are pleased with that new doorway even if you miss out on a bit of exercise!
