Another Full Tilt Boogie journal

Well, it seems that the last video has been posted for the Ticket to Venice class, which makes me very sad because the whole experience was quite magical.  If you haven't signed up you still can, all the posts are in chronological order and the instructions are neatly kept on a separate page, and the chatter is still active on the private Yahoo group. The videos of Venice are just gorgeous, so inspiring. And you saw my book so you know how wicked awesome it is.

I needed a small journal for a dedicated project, and so I went back to Mary Ann's Full Tilt Boogie (and her class is on sale!) and created a journal using the third binding she taught. And I finished sewing it while watching Laurence Olivier's Hamlet.

This is the binding ... it's called Triple Chain stitch.

The covers...
Paper Source paper covered the  back board of a paper pad

The inside consists of old ledger paper and canvas paper. (it's primed canvas)
security envelope (turned inside out), ledger paper
ledger paper
ledger paper and canvas paper
The first signature is all ledger paper (plus that large security envelope), the other two are canvas with some more ledger paper for additional notes. 

Have you made anything this past week or two?
