Teesha and Me

I bought one of Teesha Moore's journals when I was at Journalfest.  I was really excited to get it and it's so cute.  I especially like the little boxes that dangle from the spine:

It's a book she made while teaching a class.  She said she just wasn't comfortable with the 8x8 inch square pages, she is used to working with larger pages, so she decided to sell it.  Luckily for me!

I was even more thrilled by the fact that she has already completed 3 pages within the book - here is one of them:

The daunting part for me is the fact that Teesha has challenged me to fill the rest of the pages by Journalfest next year - EEK!!!  It's so nice right now, I really don't want to mess it up or risk ruining it - I am so don't feel worthy to be adding anything to that book right now!  But I suppose I'm going to have to get over that feeling, eventually.  Might have to do several practice pages first.  :)

Here's the page spread from my Journalfest journal that I did on this subject:

If you'd like to learn how to make art like Teesha, she has several how-to videos on You Tube.  If you do a search of her name, you'll find several to choose from.  She makes it look easy, and it is definitely fun, but in the end, there is only one Teesha Moore and her art is quite unique!!

Lucky you to buy one of her journals. Don't be intimidated by her work. Just think of it as encouraging you to stretch a little further.
