Gentleman Jim Archivist Journal

I went to a fabulous class at Art from the Heart in Harrogate last Saturday.
We made this awesome Archivist Journal from scratch, taught by the amazing Gentleman Crafter Jim Hankins. He's a complete sweetie too, really lovely funny guy and so is Cesar. 

If you're thinking of doing one of Jim's classes, DO IT! You'll be as happy as a little lamb in Spring :)
We got a huge class pack, some mints from Texas, and a perspex spacer bar that Jim had got made for us :) Thank you x

It was only fitting that I used a top hat on the front of the journal :)

Lots of lovely pages too :)

Love this tiny little compass I've been waiting for the right project to use it on.

We made the whole thing including the binding and all the pages.
Genius way of using the garment pins, like that. xx

I used some rub-ons on the page below.

Love that big butterfly from Tim's stickers. 

I filled my little boxes with lots of goodies.
Love the "Fabulous" button :)

Thank you Jim, I enjoyed myself immensely xxx

Jim really wanted the opportunity to drive on the left side of the road, so I let him drive my car around the industrial estate. He did good!

It was such a great class and a lovely group of ladies too. My table were especially awesome, Carol, Gill and Debs xx

I'm hoping that Jim comes back very soon,so I can do another one :)

Get your'e craft on this weekend, it's supposed to be raining! lol

Wow! Your album turned out lovely. I have still got to finish mine yet. It was a fantastic weekend and so full of happy memories. Jim and Cesar are such nice people and the workshops were so much fun. I am definitely hoping that they come back again to teach some more. It was lovely to meet you too Michelle.
