The Scrappy Journal

As promised yesterday I said I would show you my new 'Scrappy Journal' which I learnt to do with Christy who is 'Gulfsprite' on youtube etc, you can find the details here to make this journal and to join in with her ning site and further art classes.  I am also taking her 'Portraits' class.

In short, the journal was made up from all scrapbook papers with card front and back, then bound together with twine.  I really enjoyed the process, and am looking forward to decorating my front page and starting to use the art journal.  I did the binding last night.

Today, I have managed quite a bit for me.  I have made a knitting bag and a carrier bag holder, and started the undercoating on the chest of drawers unit and small desk unit.  I am at a bit of a standstill now as half way through cooking tea and no sign of the 'other half' to eat it as yet, so work stopped for now.. hoping to do some of the art journal this evening... and as I type he appears as if by magic!!! so back to the kitchen for me.........


  1. Oh my goodness you have been busy and I am already well behind with your blog posts. Looking forward to how the chest of drawers turns out :)
