She looked a lot closer in real life than she does in this picture. Turns out she had a friend with her, and the two of them hung out in the yard for about ten minutes before sauntering off. It absolutely made my day (and I'm guessing it made Willie's day too)!!!
Anyhoo, I finished this week's journals for Full-Tilt Boogie, and they were the most fun yet! We learned two new binding techniques that I had never seen before - the Sewn Chain and the Triple Chain. Here's how they turned out...
Sewn Chain BindingI made this one with a vintage Sewing Book, and reinforced the spine with vintage contact paper. I was going for a 70's look.
Triple Chain BindingFor this one I gessoed the cover to cover up some water damage, then reinforced the spine with some specialty paper before binding.
I am having so much fun learning all these new binding techniques! Here's a photo of all of my Full-Tilt Boogie journals (so far) together on the shelf...
And we still have another week of lessons to go! I can't wait!!!
Now I'm off to do a little painting and collaging. I hope you have a wonderful evening my friends! Thanks so much for visiting!!!
