Another Page

Here's one of the spreads in the journal I'm making.

I wanted to narrow this page down just a bit before I started working on it but in the process I ended up tearing into the page. To make that repair I folded another used Color Catcher over the edge of the page, covering the tear, and zig-zagged all over it. Before I did the stitching I had already decided to fold the corner of the Color Catcher over to I could pin the button in place. The stitching was done with a varigated thread.

Some of the zig-zagging was done from the back, to secure my dyed ribbon in place:

The raven is the center of another of the truffle papers my son found on clearance for me.

With very little in the book so far it already seems bulky. This is a side view with the art boards I will be using for the covers just laid in place.


I found the perfect place to keep the journal and all its potential parts and pieces:

A lunch box my Darling Daughter gave me at Christmas time!

Meanwhile, I've been dealing with vertigo and migraines this week. Hoping for improvement over the next couple of days.
