It has been a dream of mine to take a Mary Ann Moss class for YEARS.....well, at least two, maybe three years. The stars aligned, I had some time and the classes went on SALE and it does not get any better than that! I signed up.
So, last weekend I started exploring my freshly, downloaded class aptly named "Full Tilt Boogie". The name alone makes you want to take the class! I'm an avid fan of Mary Ann's journal making style and have so wanted to learn some of her methods. I wanted to learn more about bookbinding too.....so I'm off and running.
Here is my journal binding, a la Mary Ann!
The opening pages of the book......
AFTER, I journaled on the page with the strawberries and apples!
I'm the one wearing the heart, my sister is in the back and the two boys were family friends.
"Those were the days, my friend!" relates to the journaling above the photo.......
it reads: "Do you remember when they told you to face the sun and smile, then they took your picture?".
I love this picture!
I have a few more pages ready for journaling, here's a peek....
So far, this has been one fun journal to work in and it has been very inspiring, I don't really want to do anything else like....make the bed or sweep the floor (really, I never want to do that stuff). I just want to rummage through old paper, cut, paste....repeat!
You can see I've used pages of different sizes, different types of scrapbook papers, wall paper, hand painted paper, old posters, magazine ads, newspaper and added tape, photos and post card.....all held together with glue, staples, thread and "luck"!
I am truly "Living the Dream"!
