Once again, I've fallen behind in posting anything here. Rest assured, if I'm not posting something, I'm involved in creating wonderful things. Or maybe I'm working on a top secret government research project. Or maybe I'm napping...
One thing I've been pretty much obsessed with lately is making journal/notebook/datebook things.
I had looked from time to time at Midori Traveler's Notebooks. They fascinate me, with all the inserts available and different versions and sizes. It's a whole culture out there, and I had no idea just how big the TN culture was.
Meantime, I kept seeing Teesha Moore making her own version of these books, using her journal art on the covers, and selling them in her etsy shop. Since they usually sell out before I can get one, when she made a new batch, I jumped on it. I bought one in a medium size, similar to the passport size. When it came, I carried it around from room to room. I kept it on my desk while I worked so I could look at it and pick it up to feel the leather. I ordered another. Actually, I ordered two more, in the micro size, and gave one as a gift.
This called for a play day at my friend Gaye's. We played with transferring Gaye's background art onto leather. There's a learning curve, but we were very happy with the result.
