Journal Creations

Although not quite as bad as catching up from March, these are images from an “open studio” class time in April. The project for that day was to create journals, using recycled materials for the cover. Specifically they all began as cereal boxes! Here are some “start to finish” photos of the journals in various stages.

I love how all of these turned out differently. That’s one of my favorite things about being with creative souls…even with the same materials and techniques each of us is so different in our vision. Amazing!
