Journal "Listening for Wisdom"

This is my latest book entitled
"Listening to Wisdom"!
I have for many years - dare I say about 50
 been a follower of the most wonderful
Persion Poet, Rumi
and I have devoted many of his quotes
to a journal I have just completed.

 So many elements have been added to this book
including a rusted finding for closure with string,

  many images from daVinci's artworks,


vintage ledger papers, vintage music papers,


 collaged and patchworked fabrics,


dyed vintage linens and laces,


scrapbooking papers,


scripted fabrics, machine stitched quote by me,

 and a variety of plant stamped pages.

This journal has now been listed in my Etsy shop


If you wish to make your own book using my style of bookmaking
then visit Creative Workshops
to find all the details of how you can enrol
and follow along using your own particular theme and style.

Thanks all for visiting and I wish you many happy days
creating or just feeling happy and contented 
within yourselves!
