Handmade Journals

I have had such fun making these.  The covers are made from paper and cloth fused together and then painted, printed and/or stitched.  Each journal has a pocket in the front for putting loose stuff.  The pages are torn to size where required so some of the edges are nice and soft.  Some of the pages have been hand printed or painted and some are old building plans, water-colour paper is included, and graph paper and various other papers.  A length of leather thonging with a bead or button is used to keep the whole kit and kaboodle shut.  The journal with the flap and feathers is lined with pages from a vintage children's dictionary.

 I hope to be making more of these this coming week and listing them at my Etsy store, the ones pictured here are now at Reverse Garbage ready for the big fund-raising shindig on the evening of Saturday, December 4.  Click on the Reverse Garbage link, go to What's New and then End of Year Fundraising Party for details of this exciting event.
