Back in October I posted about the postcard journal I'd learned to make in a class taught by Michelle Geller at Handmade U. I had collaged backgrounds for all the pages, and then my journal got put on the back burner over the holidays.
This winter has given me lots of changes to play with the pages.
The book is made of twenty postcards, which means I have 40 pages to work with.
This was one of the postcards I left "as is"- I didn't collage on top of it. I liked the horses and carriages next to the railroad car, and I'm fascinated by the lady's watch chain worn at her waist. I have a few waist buckles, but none with the watch still attached.
Like this set of pages on the left...I didn't even realize I had two empty pages in the middle of the book.
Adding a little bit of red to these pages was kind of refreshing.
I've made a couple of other journals in this style, just for practice, but I still have six pages left to finish in this book.
By the way, while I was working on this I listened to a great audio book All the Light We Cannot See. Recommended.
