Handmade Journal by Fiona

Hello my lovely 13Arts friends. Fiona here with you today to share a little art journal that I made incorporating my "Strength in Numbers" collection. I am really enjoying my book making at the moment. I'm not sure what I'll put in this little one yet but it was so much fun to make.

I used an old book cover as the cover of the journal.

Then I sewed three signatures into the spine.

Each signature is made up of different pages, sizes and embellishments.

I also sewed on some extra tabs to help turn the pages with.

The process is very easy once you get every thing lined up. As long as you have a sewing machine and some patterned paper along with an old book you can make one.

I'm still not sure what I'll put into my book. I  have a heap of photos from my trip to Paris where I met Olga, Terhi and Marta. maybe I  can use this little book to create a memorable album of my trip.

I just love the way the papers sit against each other in each signature.

It's almost a shame to cover them with photos.
