I just finished this new little journal and it is a far cry from the brass one I made. This one is made of heavy watercolor paper as the cover. It is made sturdier by all the layers of ink, paint, gesso and modeling paste I applied.
It is bound using a Coptic method with heavy carpet thread. The thread left over has been beaded into a book mark.
I like all the fussy fibers sticking out. Some of it is lace,ribbon, organza and dyed cheese cloth.
All the inside pages have room for journaling. The last picture below has a pocket in which two tags have been placed. The coral color fiber is a gift from a wonderful blogger friend, Mitra. Mitra sent me a whole passel of goodies, even some metal odds and ends that she had lying around for my jewelry making!
Until next time, TTFN, Anni
