combinations of red & white are like heroin to me. immediate high. narcotic bliss. all that.
i found myself charged with excitement yesterday and today while i built my new visual journal.
i was so feverish and swoony that i missed a couple of stitches on the spine. whoops and who kayres?!
also someone hid my yellow waxed linen, i ran out of the orange, and i had to switch from red to orange sometime in the 3rd inning. this is one big mother.
i might not have been thinking straight when i started cutting out letters and gluing them on the front. maybe. i'm not sure yet. haven't decided if it's a mistake, a tragedy, or staggering genius.
the back is my favorite part. i was going inside the closet to get a roll of paper when the pinwheel i had taped to the closet spoke to me.
"glue me on the back" it said in a james earl jones sort of voice. so i did.
i'm thinking i'll incorporate this technique into the travel journal that i make for TICKET TO... class in the fall. it's going to work perfect for the type of binding i have in mind. something different. know what i mean jellybean?
in the unlikely even that you were wondering, the binding on this journal is one i teach in TICKET TO VENICE.
hope you're having a fabulous saturday. doing something that makes you feel bright eyed and bushy tailed. i know i am!
