Another Junque Journal

This a smaller size - around 6" x 6" ... the cover is woven fabric strips that have been stamped and foiled and then covered with organza and free machines (adapted from a class by Angie Hughes) ... I'm only showing a few pages this time you will be pleased to know ...

Daily Journaling

Have managed so far ... but back at work today after 10 days off so will see how this evening progresses .. anyway here are pages for 1st and 2nd January ...

The second one is a page from yet another stitched junk journal via Mary Ann Moss's fabulous online class. I won't bore you with even more photos of these ... but I am strangely addicted to making them. Pages from these books are great for days when I don't want to paint, draw, stamp etc and for when I want to add photos, ephemera etc etc. If you are a paper hoarder and want a good way to get rid of some of it check this class out.

... and ready to be journalled on - we will see how it goes.

New Year

Well Christmas and New Year are done once more and I have managed a bit of crafting over the last two weeks. A ROD journal made for a friends Christmas present (I am obsessed with making these little sewn journals) and the bag got finished!
