I still can't believe I pulled it off. And yet, here is the proof. It's a concertina spine fabric journal with my own hand dyed fabric inside. The outside is a scrap of the quilt stash, and matched beautifully. I rolled the spine beads from magazine pages. Inside are 5 x 5 kraft envelopes, and I've tucked various papers inside, so when the urge to doodle strikes, I can have a choice of surfaces, from white, to black, to cream, to colored.
Have fun. Whistle while you work. Smile upon completion. Fill with fanciful things.
