3971 journal

This is my new 3971 journal I made yesterday 1 May at Tracy Moore’s journal making workshop at the Urban Craft Center in Santa Monica.  The journal measures 3″ X 4″.  Teesha Moore taught art journaling on Saturday and Tracy taught journal making on Sunday.  It was really great to hang out with Teesha and Tracy and chat and make journals in Tracy’s class with 19 other students.  Tracy is an incredible teacher with amazing energy and enthusiasm for making journals.

The journal is entirely hand stitched.  The 3971 Car Co. plaque is hand riveted to the cover.  I found the plaque at the Long Beach swap meet at a cool vendor.  I love the size.  It fits wonderfully in my hand is the perfect size to put in your pocket.  This is my second handmade journal with Tracy’s  help.  He taught me how to make my first journal during their PLAY retreat, you can view it here.  Journal making is highly addictive and I can’t wait to make a really BIG one.  I am hooked.
