I made a little book.... maybe we call it a "junque journal" or a "glue book." I just wanted a place where I could cut and paste and paint and sew and write.
For the base I used all kinds of papers, both vintage and new, including lots of Fabriano Artistico 140# Hotpress. This paper makes me swoon. I truly love it that much -- so great for any medium, from pen and watercolor to collage to acrylics. The journal's design is based on Teesha Moore's Amazing 16-Page Journal (Google and find the videos on YouTube for excellent step-by-step). "Amazing" is an understatement -- I've made a gozillion of these over the years. A 16-page journal from one sheet of 22x30 paper. Amazing.
For this project I added a number of signatures. I did most of the machine sewing before sewing the journal together. Blackboard paint, ball fringe and S&H Greenstamps, washi tape, doilies and dry cleaning tags, and flowers. Lots of flowers. Pure eye candy. More photos to come!
