The second journal of the online class with Sue Bleiweiss is done! This is what really lured me into the class. I had seen sketch journals in Sue's Etsy shop and loved them at once. I would have ordered one but didn't like the colors or the fabric of those she offered.
Now I made one of my own and I am really happy with it. The inside fabric (of the pocket) is a Stoll Weber-fabric (I absolutely love what she does with fabric). The outside is a piece of Sherryl Khan-fabric I bought last year in Berlin. The photos don't show the color of the inside background fabric correctly: It is a very deep dark purple (Oakshot fabric).
The closure is a piece of bark I treated with UTEE. I particularly like the outcome of that experiment.
