Paper Journal

This is the front of a journal that I made.  It is about 7 x 8" and is a tri-fold.

This is the middle and the back.

This is it open with the 3 panels showing and there is a space for a pen or pencil.

This is the inside front page.

This is the middle section.

This is the right section.  Maybe too much black here?

 This is the first paper section.  Inside is a book of paper. It goes over the front and will be sewn down thru the middle of it on the left side.

This is the back of it which will maybe give you a better idea of where it fits.

This is the paper section for the right hand side.  It can be plain writing paper or water colour paper.

This was a double.  Should have been the back of it but I think you get the picture.

I took a class from Nellie Wortman on making a journal to keep paper and a pen in it.  At the same time Suzy Q had a blog about making this kind of journal. Between the two this is what I came up with.  It is picture heavy.

Thank you both Nellie and Suzy for your inspiration.

Your Paper Journal is stunning and there is never too much black for my liking. This looks like a great way to savor bits and pieces of treasured fabrics, laces and ribbons. Creative Journal Bliss Dear...
