This studio radiates fun, cooperation, sharing ideas, lending a hand, etc. That's not to say serious work never happens, but it comes about as a result of giving yourself permission to play and follow an idea...even the hint of an idea. With this in mind, Pam declared the remainder of the retreat to be about play and I happily followed her directive.
We raided her stash of paper bags and
while she painted fabric,
I set about slicing
and dicing the bags.
Pam decided to add more handles
to her journal while waiting for the paint to dry.
Soon enough, it was time for me to sew this to that
and that to this.
Some parts of the bags seemed perfect for creating pockets.
In all, there are 3 pockets in this journal...in fact one whole page (not pictured) is a pocket.
With plenty of supplies at hand, today's question is
do I finish the black, white and red book or make more paper bag journals? What do you think?
