Ribbon Tied, Handmade Journal

 dear readers..
and gentle viewers.

I had a great desire to create a journal 
in a squarish format
that was not stitched with
waxed linen..

as I was going to sleep

one night
I came up with this idea..
I seem to create... 
even in my sleep..

if I plasticized the page enough,
I could use ribbon or 
some kind of fabric to make a sweet little
themed journal..

What a fabulous journal. I look forward to seeing it in use.

One of the things I enjoyed seeing was how you cut the holes/slits for the ribbon. Although I have a small self healing cutting mat, I liked the idea you have for using the "innards" of a book and the texture you get as a result of these holes/slits. I also like how you reinforced the slits in the spine. Great post, dear.

Great tutorial, Cat! I really liked the green color of the first one you made, but the color scheme of the second one is so interesting! I have a set of walnut inks that I never really figured out how to use; now I know I can mix them with acrylic paint to make wonderful backgrounds. Thanks for sharing.
