This is a little bit of a cheat day because there’s nothing exciting happening here, just putting our DIY journal together.
Incidentally, I learned today that I shouldn’t have glued paper to the inside of the journal yesterday, because the weight of the signatures (or something) made it pull apart from the spine of the cover. And the glue ran a bit and the front and back page got stuck to that piece of paper a bit. Learn from my mistake and put the signatures in, then decorate the cover inside and out.
I haven’t gotten very far yet, but I had this lovely Japanese paper I really wanted to use in this project, so that’s what the two panels are. The circle is from a sheet of scrapbooking paper, and of course because it looks like a manadla it has to be colored in.
I’m not sure what else is happening here, but it will continue to be a work in progress — as the whole journal is — for a while.
If you’ve played along with the journal making this week, I’d love to know what you’re going to use yours for. I hope to give you a deeper peek inside mine tomorrow.
