I’ve finally made my very first handmade art journal! I got ahead of myself as I always do. I couldn’t wait for the waxed linen thread, it had to be ordered from the web. So I found some hemp thread at Michaels that worked but it wasn’t waxed so I have a feeling that it will come apart at some point. Also, in my enthusiasm to get started I cut my cover pages exactly the same size as the covers. There are supposed to be bigger and be folded over the edges, duhhh. But, none of that mattered, I love my journal and I’ve been creating pages like crazy since I made it. I don’t know if it’s that the journal is not perfect so I feel more at ease with not trying to make perfect pages or if its the small size (5.5 X 7.5) but I’ve been creating up a storm. I’ll be posting more in the coming days.

I’ve posted one of my favorite pages here.

Hope spring has reached your part of the interwebs!
