journal books

"Keeping it together" could be the alternate title for this post. I have finally gotten around to putting together my journal books for the first three months of the year (how quickly is it flying by?). 
I decided on hand made paper, which I ripped into small pages. I have sewn on the daily journals, one on each side and put them together by month with a cover that I drew in marker.
For now the books are just loosely held together with a few stitches. 
I do not feel at all finished with these books. I think my next step will be reinforcing the spines with some linen thread. 
Not sure where I will go next, but thoughts of dipping edges in paint are swirling in my head....

I am always so impressed with how much time you spend on your journaling and you still have time to create fabulous large pieces of art, too.

Hi Natalya,

I came across your blog from one of our followers. I thought you might be interested in deColourant. Kandi Corp.'s new product that removes and replaces the color from natural dyed fabrics, including paper. I thought you might be interested after looking at your cool book. Have a lovely afternoon, sunny and bright here in Florida.
