Do you want to do beautiful journals?
Cindy Mayfield (affectionately known as Boss Lady) taught a lettering class for those of us that wanted to know some of her secrets… She showed us all sorts of wonderful letters… But, the secret Is a NASTY ONE! PRACTICE! What??? I hate that word. I tell it to the students in my jewelry design classes all the time. BUT, I HATE THAT WORD!!! I dream & I drool as I look through the J is for Journal page I have on Pinterest. The photo below is an example from that board. Click HERE to go & take a peek.
And then my buddy Lisa taught an amazing Altered Book Class. I borrowed some of her photos as my image had too much glare on the glass not matter what tips the amazing photographer Amy Boland shared… that darn beveled glass was not our friend.
Some pages have pages left empty just waiting for embellishments.
Other pages are filled with beauty…
The spine (below) as beautiful as the rest of the book.
The back… stunning. It makes you sad that that’s the end of the book…. And the end of Paper Cowgirls 2012. Thanks Cindy & all the teachers for an amazing 3 days of classes, shopping & FUN!
I’m in a huge dither cleaning out the closets (gotta get some spring & summer in there as it’s too hot for all that winter stuff), & the guest room. My gal pal Sandy is heading out on Friday & she wants HER ROOM ready for her. We’ll be off to Round Top Antique Festival so there’ll be lots of photos coming your way for that. Hope you’ll join us!!!
