Making journals

I'm in a journal making mood! I just finished a journal using an old hard cover book. I took the book block out and collaged the cover. The innerds are made of drawing paper and I embellished some of them with small pictures or stitching. This journal is a gift for someone to write in, not necessarily for visual journaling. I used several coats of varnish on the cover which gives it that shiny and hard surface.

I got so into making this journal that I signed up for Mary Ann Moss' Full Tilt Boogie class to learn how to make several other types of journals. Fun!!

Here is the front:

What are you working on?


  1. Love the back of this one. I'm working on getting my writing groove back...I miss it. Keep up the great creative work, you rock!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement Nissa! I appreciate it. Good luck getting your groove on!
