Still more journals -- Week Three of Sue B's class

Week Three's journals were pretty quick to make. In fact, I decided to start by making two, the first of which I will send to my friend Kyra.

The cover of Kyra's journal is a Jane Sassaman fabric I've had in my stash for a long time. I used a purple and green polka dot to line the inside of the front and back cover.

The second journal, which I'll probably keep, has a cover made of some chartreuse and turquoise fabric I dyed a few weeks ago.

I added pockets made of handmade paper, lots of cotton paper and watercolor paper pages, and a few tags that I painted with watercolors to both journals. Also stamped a few pages with handmade and purchased stamps.

Both journals have cord and beads for the binding.

Sue B's journal making class has been fantastic. I highly recommend it. If you are interested in taking it, check Sue B's blog at http://suebleiweiss.typepad.com/

Now I need to get back to quilting. No more journals (until we get next week's assignment!)
