"Urban Journal Remix" is a wonderful online workshop I took with Roben-Marie Smith, a talented designer, artist and teacher. I receive her newsletters and saw she was offering this course for free. I had to sign up! I found it very well organized and well explained . . . inspiring! I had a lot of fun making my journal. Click on the link above (the title of the class) to learn all about it. :o) 

Roben-Marie had us take all the pages out of an old discarded book, saving the hard covers, to make this unique handbound journal. We filled it with new pages of our own, following her instructions.

<< A quick slideshow video I made will share my urban journal after I sewed all the new pages in. The gallery below is where I will add how I fill my new/old journal with art! 

We believe the ledger I used for this project once belonged to Steve's Grandfather, Dr. Deming. I did reuse some of the pages I took out, when creating the journal with new blank pages. I used Roben-Marie's "Art Pops" too, throughout the journal for color.
