Tape Journals - Sarasota, Florida

Last month Jeff and I drive to Sarasota, Fla. To take a journal making workshop at   Expressive Arts Florida, an intermodal center for creative expression.  Project for the day was making a tape journal.  There were seven people in class, each with their own unique idea of what papers they liked, number of signatures to include in the book and even the color bookbinding thread to use.  The people were nice and the class loads of fun.  A nice, creative way to spend a day.

Tools for the day:

Papers to choose from for covers:

Jeff hard at work:

Finished journals!  Jeff's is the "mottled blue and white" covered one.  Mine is the red one with black tapes.  I blinged up the tapes with gold rhinestones when I returned home.  I can't wait to write in it!
