Venice 2014

here are a few photos of my travel journal for the trip I want to take to venice in 2014.  this is my ticket to venice journal for the on-line class that mary ann moss taught - 
great class with all kinds of videos!!

i used a vintage photo album cover  - which i cut in half and then created a spine for

folded over - bones of the journal

here are six signatures - i ended up only using 5 and kind of rearranged them just a bit

half way through my diamond stitch binding

journal fully bound and fanned out - yeah!!

the cover

inside one of the signatures

painted page in one of the five signatures

recycled calendar page and some scrapbook paper

i will finish up tomorrow by making the closure and filling the pockets with ephemera to put in the journal when i take my trip...  feels good to have this put together.

i'll show a few more photos when it's all prepped for the trip :-)

ciao for now babies,

Never to Old to Learn New Things...

well today i just bit the bullet - took the bull by the horns - jumped in feet first - and any other cliche one can think of...

i made a video of my bermuda journal.  hadn't a clue about what i was doing.  didn't even know if my camera would record sound.  dug out the old tripod and pushed the record button and this is what i got...

hope it works

i guess you can teach an old dog new tricks or more correctly this old dog taught herself a new trick :-)
