New Orleans Journal

I finally had a chance to finish up the New Orleans journal that I started well before Mardi Gras. It’s blasting with bright colors and fun; is 9″ x 7″ with a soft cover made from a patchwork of dupioni silks, print satins, and laces. It has three signatures (sets of pages) hand-stitched into the cover, with a total of 92 pages. I used photos I took while on my 2018 visit there. If you do a search on, you’ll find lots of posts with pictures from my trip. What a city! ~SueBee

Note: if you’d like to see more of the journal, I recorded a page flip-through. To view it on my YouTube channel, please click here.

    I absolutely love this. I grew up in a small town outside New Orleans, so the ironwork, Mardi Gras masks, and rich colors just bring back the fondest memories. Great art! Thanks for posting.
