Remains of the Day Journal

Several months ago I was lucky enough to win a One World One Heart drawing held by Heather Bluhm of Bluhm Studios. Heather is a very talented mixed media artist and I've admired her work for ages. At the time of the drawing Heather was right in the middle of a big project so she kindly let me know there would be a delay in sending the journal out to me. Well, I recently received it and I can tell you it was SO worth the wait! Heather was inspired by Mary Ann Moss' Remains of the Day online journal class and after seeing this gorgeous journal I wanted to go take the class myself! Its bright and colorful fabric cover holds pages of wonderful papers and bits of ephemera all sewn up into one fabulous journal. Here are a few photos...I love the page with a portion of an Artfest brochure because it's from the first Artfest I attended! One page has an old paper did Heather know I have a thing for these?? I've had the journal for a few weeks now but didn't have a chance to really look at it until I returned from visiting my mom. I've turned all the pages several times now and keep finding new things to look at. Thank you so much Heather...I'm just delighted with it!
