Well, we made a beautiful mess and it was fun…. Diane was encouraging and let us try things out that were our own ideas. We used all sorts of old book pages and graph paper of all sizes.

Having supplies ready to go is a true luxury and we were blessed to spend time here with Diane.

After “making our papers” we then created journals. We used roofing tar paper for the journal cover and added assorted papers. We added sgraffito  designs to the cover. Still thinking just how these journals might become a very special addition to a Visual Faith project.
