Journals continuing

The journals are nearly all done and soon they will be ready to head out into the world. They are headed for  a stock room exhibition called "Small Treasures and Pleasures" at Main Street Gallery in Montville.

These last two are black and white again and quite stunning in their own way.

The first one I used three sets of 'modified Celtic weave' and the stitching is quite dense this time, less open than the teal book. The cover is some of my paste paper - I like the way the lines aren't perfectly straight so you sometimes get these optical illusion feelings when you look at it.

The second is a medium sized journal again with paste paper covers. I sewed on tapes this time and took two over the boards and onto the inside cover; and kept the middle as a loop around tie.


  1. The black and white journals are both very nice. The stripes on the first make for a very elegant look and I like the laced-in tapes on the second one.

  2. I really like the look and idea of the warp around tapes.... very pretty! and black and white is always an elegant combo don't you think?

  3. sharp, elegant and very stylish!


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
