Another Technique finished

Well I tried another technique "Radiant Batik" from Paper Transformed by Julia Andrus and it worked out beautifully. This is one great book. And I used the paper to cover a personal journal I made today. It's another hard cover bound journal, but I used my comb binder instead of my Zutter so I could use my Zip Lock coils. I'm on a roll. Click on the pic to go to my website for more images and directions etc. There is also a link on that page for the details of the background.

Yesterday I went to a friend's place for a play day. I can only say this has been one fantastic week. We tried about 7 different techniques as well as go shopping at The Scrap Yard and then Michael's with our coupons. Had a wonderful lunch at her place and then went to Pizza Hut for supper. Got lots of goodies from her - threads and fibers, blog mags, poppy napkins, gorgeous. And it was even raining outside, but who cared...

My quilling day on Wednesday was fantastic. Picked up a few tools and definitely learned a thing or two or three. Have already made a couple ATC's using the quilling. Will make a few more.

This sounds like a great book! I like the techniques you've used out of it. Another wonderful project.
