WOYWW: art journal completed

Lots of bright colors on my desk.  Here, I am putting the finishing doodles on the art journal cover before sewing in the paper bundles and inside pockets.

 Completed journal (inside) You can see the sewn bundles of paper I was working on last week.  Sewing on cardboard proved to be challenging.

Stop by and see all the photos HERE.  I am very proud of this project!  And happy I finished it before the holiday rush.  I am going to make another one using all the Christmas cards I get this year.  Obviously it will have to be much larger.  

Joining up with What’s onYour Workdesk? Wednesday where desk snooping is not only allowed but all part of the fun!  Won’t you join us!

  7. Hi Diane, I'm on catch-up this week as my friend forced me (though it didn't take much) to go to Harrogate for a craft fair and I'm feeling a bit tired today and have the food shopping to do to...and well you know! But pleased I popped by, this is a gorgeous journal page and so much colour. Happy belated woyww, Angela x 19
