I have been working on the cover for the Remains of the Day Journal. The cover is made first and actually while I am at it I might go ahead and make another one. The class was great and Mary Ann Moss keeps your attention with the clear, concise and short videos. Great for people with short attention spans like me.
Here is the whole cover which is all ready for the insides. ARGG---that top part is not straight. Of course that is all I will see when it is finished. Note to self...just let it go, Martha and enjoy the wonkiness of it all.
It was really lots of fun and I tried not to think too hard and just grabbed stuff from the scrap pile. I hadn't used Bernie in quite a while and I was so glad that she cooperated with me. She was happy to be back at work today.
I put a button on it and actually that long strap might not need to be that long I haven't sewn it on yet. Mary Ann just wrapped it around.
It's funny how I seem to pull out the same colors all the time. Now, I will start on all the pages. That will probably take a while because everything is sewn on to the pages with little pockets and stuff. Mary Ann's journal was fabulous but everyone's will be different. I have been collecting security envelopes and I have never used a security envelope for anything other than lining the trash can but they are quite creative actually.
