Journals journals journals

One of the things we get to do as tutors at Wrapt in Rocky,  is to have a table of small things for sale - things that students might like to purchase, and our sales night is tomorrow night.

Before I left I spent some time making small journals - I figure you can never have too many notebooks.

I used some of my friends' feathers - I have good friends who collect and share them with me - as well as some of my white on white work.

 I stitched the feather onto 300gsm watercolour paper for the covers, then included 180gsm watercolour paper for the pages.


I always love a guinea-fowl feather...



The subtle colours in this one are so beautiful.


And then I stamped some letters... a b c

 Embossed a map...


 And rolled some tiny indentations across a cover.


Which left really subtle patterns on the covers and I like the way you have to investigate further...or you just get a nice surprise when you realise it isn't blank!


And I found a peacock feather to throw into the mix.


And then packaged them all up for sale.


 Hopefully folk will like them.

And last week, before I left, we had this fiery sunset - a stunner!
