wow!! can i just say right up front that you are the best bloggy cheerleaders.....ever!!! you have no idea how much i appreciate you waving your creative pom-poms.....all of your encouragement and great collage tips were SO helpful and i can't thank you enough!! i put together some collage pages last night using some of my scraps and some of the wonderful bits of happiness that i won in a giveaway from tess several months ago! some of the pages look a little unfinished because i decided to leave some white space for future journaling....and i can always go back and add all kinds of fun stuff to the pages once i get my writing filled in!
and here's what the pages look like inside the book! julie calls this second book in her class the "long tall skinny", and for good reason....it measures almost 12 inches tall!
for the covers, i used a piece of favorite paper that i've had in my stash for quite a while....just waiting for the perfect project (i would love to have a journal filled with fabulous little watercolors and ink spots like this!). and i thought that this piece of repurposed black leather would be the perfect finish for the spine.
i learned a lot this week....about collage and about myself. thanks for sharing the journey with me! :)
