A Journal for Michele

First of all I have to share with you that it's 102 degrees at my home today, YUCK!! Thank God for central air!! Where I live, our summer temps are generally in the highs of lower 80's (& that's bad enough), so this 100 degree weather is NASTY stuff, actually anything above 80 for us is just plain icky!!

I wanted to share with you a journal I made for Michele of EyEmbellishments. Her birthday was a couple of weekends ago, so I made this for her. It was made by using modeling paste & Golden Fluid Acrylics.

I had seen other artists add beading to the spine to cover the thread from when the signatures were sewn into the journals, so I gave it a try......................it didn't really seem to do much for me, so I'm not sure that I'll try it again.

Nice looking journal, Tracy, I really love the closure! I visited my Dad in Renton once when the temp was in the 90's and I was miserable-there was no A/C at his place! Thank goodness I could escape to the motel to cool off! I cherish all your green, but I love my DRY Nevada!

What a gorgeous birthday gift she probably did the happy dance when she got it.

Such a lovely gift. I was able to take it to Long Beach's IQF and play in it with Alysa Burke's stamps and stencils during a Make it University. Also a great place to glue down my Trader Joe Chocolate wrappers. Much love and appreciation, michele
