I just love making these shabby, scrappy journals. I love using up my scraps of fabric for the covers and added elements to the inside papers. I painted most of the paper, using the paint that was left on the brayers and brushes after painting fabrics. And of course, I'm using up papers in my ever abundant pile of stuff. I received many nice compliments from my visitors to my booth in Orlando. Even sold one!!!! The journals are just fun to hold and leaf through. I'm been journaling in my first journal and that's fun as well. I can't thank Mary Ann Moss at www.dispatchfromla.typepad.com for a wonderful class - Remains of the Day. Plus, she's given her students permission to sell their creations.
