Here is a new journal I made myself a while back. I used the sewn-over-tapes binding style while trying leather straps, a circle cut from one of my acrylic daily paintings, and a button that seemed to belong. Instead of hiding the title and author, I left it intact.
Like the other Full Tilt Boogie journals, it has a mix of papers—calendars, cards, old magazine articles and covers, my photos and art, book pages, and various art papers.
Any artistic inclinations have been pushed aside the last several weeks as I’ve been dealing with my husband’s most recent health issues. How do you find comfort in times of high stress? Recently, I’ve turned to old books (Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series) and a new DVD (A Celtic Pilgrimage with John O’Donohue).
