Life Story Journal

I made up my little book first, with random pages, papers, envelopes, cards etc. I gessoed and stitched and bound them together. Then I had a completed book and could quickly put the pages together, concentrating more on the feelings then what it looked like. I tried to be a bit more free and less contrived with the style. It was a lot of fun putting it together.

Here are a few pages: (the rest are on Flickr)

  1. Hi!
    I'm just taking this class now, almost a year after you did. I LOVE your book. I find it very inspiring. Wonderful style and truthfulness. Truly beautiful! Thanks for sharing. I'm wondering what you used to bind the pages all together? Did you take it somewhere or do you have something that will do that?

    Also, I see your a style school student. So am i!! I'd love to chat. Email me at
