The Rhodia Journal Swap #2

Drawing was getting a little boring, so I decided to alter the journal with my sewing machine. First, a pocket made from envelopes and paint chips with a MOO card slipped inside.

I've been working through this journal for a few weeks but it was time to wrap up the last few pages and get it out the door. Good progress on the CREATIVITY QUEUE this week!

There are 12 Rhodia webbie journals traveling around the states. 12 folks are diligently filling in the pages of the journals with all sorts of creative fodder. This is the second journal I've worked in... ten to go.
