From my Doodling Journal

Had my "Doodling" Journal out today. Haven't looked at it in a long time and had forgotten what was in it. 
Just wanted to share with you. 
Some are finished, some are not.

Hope you enjoyed this :) have a great life.

Pinterest in the middle of the Night!

You never know what you are going to find in the middle of the night when you can't sleep... so you fire up the computer and venture on over to "Pinterest"!!

Recently, that is just what happened to me, and as I was perusing the site trying in vain to return to sleep I found "How to make a hanger weaving"

Well....those who know me know how I love to play with weaving and I KNOW, in another time and place, I would have been a weaver....HOWEVER, in this time and place I just dabble in it.

Had to try it and it was really fun!!

Work in progress. Figured out some things I would do different as I went through this process. You know I don't do anything by the book!!

Finished product! Yep. Looks like a fancy cobweb to me! :)
I love it!!!

What better place to hang it than on the door to my Studio! So if you come see me you will now be welcomed with my "Hanger/Cobweb weaving"

I have a feeling more will come.....thanks for coming by!

Good Intentions

A Full day in the studio....oh Boy!!! I can finish up a Journey Journal, I can start on a couple of "Sisters" pieces and try out some new ideas I have.............

Yeah, know what they say about good intentions!!

I DID spend the day in the Studio, but found myself knee deep creating some videos I'm adding to my "Journal Making Journal" online workshop on a new paper tape method I came up with that will work very well in journals. I realllllyyyyy did not intend to do that right now!!'s almost complete and will probably be available tomorrow. 
(If you are in my journal making class you will be receiving that information)

BUT.... I did get some other things accomplished!

Made a great sheet of Paper Tape

And completed the signatures and cover for my Journal.

And I'm loving this cover!! It is covered with hand woven painted papers, Kozo and Philippine Gampi bark and some jute and string weaving!!

so.....ALL was not lost.

Hope to have that Journal completed soon! Thanks for stopping by.

To be Continued......

I am so excited about a new "Paper Tape" method I have come up with as a way of using clear packing tape!

BUT....I can't share just now because it will be part of my "Just loving my Journal" class in Kansas City, Mo. next year with 
Art & Soul! 
However, here's a photo of what I did yesterday.

I am thinking of adding this to my online "Let's Make Paper Tape" workshop and if I do, I'll let you know. 

Onward and Upward!!!!

Thanks for stopping by :), Suzi
