Remains of the Day Journal

I have been happily sewing and scrapping this week. I signed up for the Remains of the Day Class taught by Mary Ann Moss. (http://dispatchfromla.typepad.com/remains_of_the_/course-description.html)

I learned about this class through the Sketchbook group on Yahoo. This group was formed when a bunch of us involved in Sarah Whitmire's Soul Journaling (http://www.souljournaling.com/)group signed up for the ArtHouse Co-op Sketchbook Project. I found Sarah's class by Googling "art journaling."

What a whirlwind this has been. Just like life. One thing leads to another and another and another. Sometimes we forget to take a step back and catch our breath. Especially when the whirlwind is a positive thing like art journaling has been for me.

I "finished" by scrappy journal. The basis anyway and now will fill it up. But first it's time to take a step back and get back in touch with some other projects, including a "One Color" piece of art for the ArtHouse Co-op.


  1. I like your scrappy journal Rita!!

  2. I love these journals and yours is fantastic! A wonderful way to use and combine those bits and pieces of daily life!

  3. Loving the look at your journal! I'm a fan of anything blue and stripey :) have fun filling up the pages!!
