i agree....all these journals are beautiful! i am so jealous (in the nicest way, of course!!) because i want to make one. well, i googled making a journal from a cereal box, got a bunch of funky, not totally useful stuff, but i shall try it! especially using grocery bag paper, what a great idea...after all, who doesn't have that! hahahaha! beauty and recycling all in one, how great is that! if you ever have the time, i am sure i wouldn't be the only person thrilled to have you tell us a bit of how these journals are made from boxes....sharing is good! hahahaha! thank you for the wonderful post!


Wow, beautiful! ALL of them, love love the brown paper bag pages and your tea man

....OK, I have an idea....LET'S have our own little mini workshops, you can teach us this....I can share the manafest journaling techniques, everyone can share the NEW studio!!




This looks like it was a big dose of creativity. Seeing T and T's journals up close and personal must have been incredible.


Glad you took that photo of Tracy's journal, I missed that one! Great pics, and great summary of a FAB weekend!

How wonderful that you were able to see how Teesha and Tracy work, and to spend time in beautiful Fort Townsend! I live right across the water from there. Gorgeous pages and journals, Fran.

I feel like you were our personal tour guide!
I especially love the shot of your long shadow in the foreground of Fort Worden.
Cool Beach Air. Misty, overcast days. Sweet, gypsy-lighted coffee stands. Your amazing work. The company of like-minds.
What a wonderful way to step out of the daily grind and revel in a new Dimension.
Great shots, as usual.
Welcome Home Baby!

oh fran all of your new journals and pages are so so vibrant/rich/gorgeous
looks like this was an unstructured opportunity to explore new things in your journal. teesha & tracy moore are such creative interesting people.


What fun journals! I love the teacup and is that a fern frond? It's so wonderful. I've always wished Teesha and Tracey would teach at Artfest. I may have to skip Artfest in the future and attend Play. I've heard great things about it.


Ooooo! Your pages are exciting and I really like your use of colors. This must have been an fantastic workshop..I just want to reach out and touch all of those journals!

I've just stumbled across your blog - I so enjoyed seeing what you created at PLAY - I have not heard of this retreat previously but now will definately look into it.
