Last Journal

Here’s the final journal in Sue B’s course. I used more of the faux leather since I made such a large piece. I have enough for at least one more journal. I embellished with pipe cleaners wrapped with novelty yarn and similar beads.

Here’s a side view of the spine.

and a blurry photo of the back.

Here’s the lining of red hand made paper. This journal has three signatures.

A short note on my Vegas trip. We went to see Spamalot which was great fun. It is in the Wynn. I was quite surprised by the decor in the Wynn. Most Vegas hotel/casinos are very glitzy. The Wynn was decorated with thousands of tassels in all sizes and colors. Tassels were everywhere. Then in the hallways and alcoves, there were large framed embroideries. I was going in and out of all the side hallways and little cubbies to see all of them. Then by the convention center they had two huge panels that were made up of wooden printing blocks. They were gorgeous and there was unconcealed larceny in my heart! But I couldn’t quite fit two 15 by 5 foot panels in my luggage. And of course I didn’t take my camera because who wants another Vegas photo? The wholesale trade show for the store was disappointing. I’m not sure we’ll go back next year. But if you’re in Las Vegas, do stop in at the Wynn and take a look at the fantastic fiber art on display.
