Long, Tall Skinny Journal

Another journal done from Julie Pritchards Super Nova class. We collaged the pages first before making the book. Most of the backgrounds, quotes, and journaling will be added now that the book is finished to personalize the book. This book was more time consuming to make, with all of the collaged pages, but I am lovin' how it turned out. The pages are just card stock, folded in half length wise, and then bound together with ribbon.
Our next book will be a fabric covered journal. This one looks much more difficult and think it will be a challenge for me to complete. I will have to see if I get time to get it done.
My Module D classes, with Traditions will be starting again soon, so they with keep me very busy for the winter months. I will post my progress here.........
hugs, Sue K

Journals from Super Nova Class

I've been taking another new class and it has been wonderful. We are learning how to make three different types of journals. The pics shown are the first style. I had so much fun, I ended up making two. They are made with watercolor paper for the inside pages, but you could use any kind of paper to make them.

The "Time" journal was covered with a page I had made awhile back that I really liked. I covered the journal with muslin and then put the page on top of that.
The orange journal I covered with paper and then added the awesome doily half and embellished that to finish it. I love the way it turned out.
I think I will get myself some more papers and make some of these to sell when I open my Etsy store for artwork.
The class is the one I mentioned in an earlier post. Julie Pritchard is the teacher and her site is
The class is very affordable and is part one of her SuperNova class. The second part will be journaling. The class is ongoing so you can sign up at any time and learn at your own pace. She is a great teacher and very thorough with how she presents the infomation. Videos are great!!
I will post next weeks journals when I get them done.
I hope you are all having a wonderful end of summer holiday weekend!
