Making Journal Covers

Over the last little while I've been making a variety of journal covers.  Some fit over standard composition books and others are a bit smaller and fit over some hard cover journals I found recently.





 


 

 
Each member of my fibre art group, GOE, is going to make three journals to be donated to a women's shelter in our area as an outreach program so that we can give something back to our community.  It is our hope that these journals will brighten the women's day while giving them a special journal to record thoughts and feelings as they bravely begin a new chapter in their lives.

Here are some of the journals I have made.  Three will be donated and the others will be available at Windows to the North Gallery.

  3. Love your journals Linda, and what a great project and cause. I was going to book making classes for awhile and rally loved it, until the instructor moved away, and the source for supplies dried up. Thats part of living in a small town I guess. Have fun!!

  6. Linda, they are fantastic. I wish I had such a skills to make it, I would probably go back to journaling if I had such a great cover for it...
