round robin

I'm so excited to be participating in my first ever round robin journal.  Leslie at One Woman's Hands started/is hosting and here's the peek at mine.  There are few constraints (except to finish and mail on time each month!) - each contributor will complete two double page layouts in every book.  

I wanted to try a new binding way, so made my journal with a combination of bristol paper and watercolor paper.  My "theme" is a return to one of my favorite topics: quotes.  Here's my cover - the embellishment is a link from a belt I had Dan cut apart.

Here's my binding - it turned out pretty well (only one page slipped in the gluing process).

Inside page with one of my fave quotes to set the tone.

I wanted a place where people could "sign in" and autograph their participation so I made a pocket for tags.

Open to see front and back and below is the book standing up.....cut a few shaped pages just for fun.

I sent the book on its way before I left for camping and I'm eagerly awaiting my first journal to work in.....

Other than my journal (which took quite a bit of problem solving time!) I've been making mail art and sending it out into the world and working slowly, oh so slowly on a couple of mixed media pieces.  My 365 collages have taken a bit of a back seat but I'm looking forward to playing catch up this weekend!  Stay tuned.



  1. Fantastic Terrie, love the binding and the colors, that soft purple. Thanks for the great post card! xox

  2. **BEAUTIFUL** book, Terrie!! :]

  3. Fabulous book Terrie! I can't wait to see how it comes back to you. Your binding is wonderfully neat and tidy--I'm impressed. And admire your braveness for participating in a round robin. I'm finally doing a catch up tonight so look forward to your other posts. Thanks for your wonderfully supportive comments lately (as always!!) xoxo

  4. Awe Terrie you will have a blast sweetie. I am doing one with my sister and a few other arty friends at the moment and have started to feel really sad tbh as it is coming to an end now, only one more round to go!! It has been an amazing experience that I will treasure forever and I wouldn't hesitate to get involved with another one in the future. Lol I have been itching to share some pages but we all decided to avoid doing this until everyone had their own books back. Your book looks stunning, beautifully bound and decorated and what a superb sign-in page, fab idea my lovely.
    Huge hugs x x x x

  5. wow - what a gorgeous book! Love the tag idea. Can't wait to follow along as this book makes the rounds.

  6. Great idea, too bad I'm so far away :( And too bad that it would never work in this country :(


Thanks so much for taking the time to add a comment. I value what you think!
