Journal Making

Some months ago my youngest daughter asked me to make a journal with some handmade papers she had bought. She wanted a journal where she could put her dearest pictures in.

So I had a reason to take a class from Sue Bleiweiss ‘Journal making for the fiber artist”.
This journal is the result :

I used the text from : "les feuilles mortes" written by Jacques Prévert and played with ‘wordle’ a software program that creates word-clouds.
I mirror printed the words on iron-on transfers, chose a background fabric and ironed the transfer on the fabric.
After I made the cover, I sewed a magnet button as closure.
And last but not least, I added the pages in the journal.

I just had the time to take pictures from the finished journal that my youngest took it so she could fill it with her photos and text.

Nathalie, I just love this journal. I had played with Wordle, but hadn't really thought about how I could use it, but what you have done really excites me. Thank you so much for sharing it.

I love how you used wordle to create your cover.
