Vintage Journal

I've been taking Jeanne Oliver's Creatively Made class. She is such an inspirational artist. I love her sweet, gentle, encouraging spirit. She's teaching us so many wonderful techniques and it's been a lot of fun to create some artwork using them.
This is the vintage journal I made from one of her week one lessons.
I really like the juxtaposition between the frilly lace and rhinestones and the leather
"be strong" piece which I made from the belt of someone very special to me. I know he would want me to be strong.
Signature w/rose
