Remains of the Day Journal

Woohoo – I finished up the first journal in Mary Ann Moss’ on line class, Remains of the Day.  You can view the other artist participant journals here.

I created a quick video on Vimeo of my completed journal.

The journal cover was sewn using quilt blocks for the front and wool felt for the inside and then free motion stitched. The journal pages are created with scrapbook paper, vintage music sheets, children’s book pages, transparencies, maps, tags and tidbits from my stash. The pages measure approximately 5.5 inches by 6.5 inches. There are two signatures with 12 pages each, hand sewn into the cover.

I wish you a Happy New Year!  Keep it simple!

    Words cannot express how GREAT your journal came out! The colors and textures are riotous, but work well because they are contrasted with a sort of tidiness.

    Your work is beautiful and an inspiration!
