A Potter Plays with Paper..

So I took the journal making class, we have gotten 2 of the 5 lessons and I have not even started the second one. I don’t care for the size but when I do make that one I’m thinking I will do it like a notebook that will hold my colored loose-leaf paper…

The first one I did make went well I think, I didn’t do the satin stitching around the outside. I decided I would use fluffy black yarn. It shows less that I have know clue with sewing…

This whole experience has been very interesting, I have learned a lot of things that I would have never thought about in the pottery world..

Will I make more? Not sure on that one. I did want to make them for several people for Christmas but it’s a bit stressful and I have spent 20 times more then I thought I would..

I now have a lot of neat sewing tools & a boatload of fancy papers so guess I will be doing my glorified scrap booking whether I want to or not..

The buttons for journal class

I have been making buttons with porcelain and Raku firing them for the journal class.

While I’m doing this I keep thinking ok I make a button & build the journal from that place in my mind.

The ones I have seen in the yahoo albums look awesome!

I wonder how other people come up with how there’s will look?
