Teesha Moore Workshop

I'm heading out on a journey....

                                  I am nearly 46...

                                                         within days.......

                                                                                and .............

I am going to Small Studio to take a class from Teesha Moore, actually 3 classes...I signed up for all of them!  I'm looking forward to this little artsy adventure...but really excited about learning Teesha Moore's techniques of how to make her most fabulous journals. When I was first introduced to her journals I loved them, instantly.....awww...they are amazing. The most beautiful vibrant colors and so creative
                                                  Follow the link and take a peek into her world of fascinating color.
I watched her video on you tube and tried my hand at a journal. It turned out pretty cute, but I'm not a journaler-YET, so there are lots of blank pages and a few doodles. I will show pictures soon.

Here is the front cover. I made this after watching Teesha Moore on youtube.

 Here is the back. I used all vintage scraps of fabric from my grandmothers quilting fabrics and bought the bright colored fancy yarns for the binding. I hand sewed all the stitches. It was the perfect project for night time tv. I get bored just watching a show so this was great to keep my hands busy.
 And this is the first page of my Doodles. I used watercolor paper cut to size and folded each sheet in half to create the pages. The only thing I need to add is a button and some journaling from the workshop.

The link to Small Studio is

The dates are August 25 Dayplanner Journal  and August 26 Hand Stitched Art with a bonus class Junk Journal. There are only a few openings left. August 24 class is Full.

Hope to see you there!
