Lundi Spread


No, it's not Monday, I know, but I did not have a vintage French Wednesday page so had to use Lundi instead. As no-one came and spoiled me I decided to do it myself and gave myself licence to make a spread in my Vintage Gluebook Moleskine Journal. It took most of the morning but it calmed me down no end so served its purpose.

I have found participating in this class in some ways life - or at the very least art changing and I can really recommend the class highly. You can still sign up and will find all the lessons ready and waiting for you. Our Flickr Group is also very active still.

Apart from the sliver of map on the left hand side of the right hand page, everything is truely vintage (and that means at least 100 years old in my vocabulary). I spend a lot of time cutting out the figures with all their details but I think the effort paid off in the finished result!

Such a beautiful spread.

I'm so glad to read it took you all morning.
I felt like I was really slow and that everyone else could probably complete a spread in about an hour.

NOW I'm feeling much more in tune and confident.

Thank you Frieda!

Frieda, I love seeing this gluebook art pour out of you. I wish I was creating as much as you are, but I do know I will get back to it -I enjoyed the class as much as you did! I truly enjoy seeing you explore this (kind of) new medium for you -no fabric! A bit like meditation to start the day, right?
