Teesha Moore Journaling Class

Had a GREAT time at Teesha Moore's art journaling class this weekend. Ginny and John made us feel right at home again, and Teesha set us to work making covers, decorating them, sewing in signatures, and journaling away. I learned a lot, but I have a long way to go before I have the intricate details that Teesha has on her pages. So, without further ado... here's what I made!
Here's my cover:

The first page:I repeated a quote that I used on my license plate box because I really like the quote, so I wanted it in my journal.

"working" hard. :) Loved sitting in front of you, my dear Ginny. I didn't get a photo of Susan... She sat next to me creating in her colorful journal for three days. And survived, I might add. :)Part of the class busily working away while Teesha gives some advice in the background.Left side of third double page spread. Only borders here... thought I'd show you the page before I get any further on it. I'll try to post the final page when I create it.Right side of third double page spread. Also just barely started.Ok, back to work for me!

When I have time, I've been creating greeting cards and small paintings for the art fair. OH, and the 10' x 10' canopy I ordered for the art fair booth arrived while I was at class. YAY!
