Junque Journal - Finally All Stitched Up

The book is finally all stitched together!!!!

As you may or may not know, I’m taking the Junque Journal online class from Balzer Designs.  Shown here are the completed “guts” of the book that will be bound into the book shell. 

Each step is teaching more and more of the book making process and I’m thrilled with the outcome thus far. I will make sure to continue showing progress shots and eventually some journal play once I’m done.

Further Up and Further In!

Breakfast All Mixed Up #digitalart #ios #collage #make

Playing around with more digital collage and feeling vaguely inspired by my recent trip to Jefferson,TX. This image was fueled by many of the amazing 40's - 50's advertising signs that we saw throughout the town.

Keeping creating folks,

Seeing 20/20 ~ New Hand Carved Rubber Stamp

Trying to work through my Speedball rubber scraps on this one. I found that the rubber was starting to crumble, I salvaged it as best I could though. Sometimes humidity can effect the durability of the sheets. I think it turned out just fine though.

I’ve collected 50s-60s eyewear, so this stamp fits right into my odd collecting habits. I found the source image on Pixabay, which is an mazing copyright free source. 

I hope you enjoy and keep making!

Further Up & Further In,

Junque Journal Front Cover Redo

I had to redo the front cover after a mishap with the sealing medium, but that's perfectly okay. I like this version better anyway.

Go paint something,
