The first journal

Today, I made my first journal from scratch and was really pleased with the result! Amazing what you can do with simple materials; an A1 sheet of paper, some thread, a craft needle, an implement to press the folds (I used a letter opener).

The paper was folded, the folds then pressed to sharpen the creases and then it was stitched together.

 The outer cover was then given a liberal coat of acrylic gesso. Now I just have to decide what to do with the cover, a blank canvas- literally!

  1. I am planning to do something like this with the paper on which I always paint with the leftover paint of my acryl paintings ... Mine will be a colourful one :)
