I hand crafted a little metal journal. The front and back covers are brass. The front cover is etched with text and script. The pages are watercolor paper. Some of the pages are embellished but all offer space to write.
I learned to do book binding and used Irish waxed linen from Belfast that I've had for a while now. The method I used is slip-knot binding.
I soldered a little hinged door on the front cover that opens to reveal vintage children. The banner under the pic is stamped with 'gathered'.
Some inside pages.
A piece of mica covers a pastoral scene. There are more than a few sewn pages with lace, fabric and ribbon.
This page unfolds outward for more space to journal. I used some of my card making products and skills in the book. I have another book in the works, this one a softer cover. I'll post it when it's finished.
Thanks for stopping by!! Anni
