Some New Journals

Been wanting to bind these up for a while.

This is a mixed-paper journal using the last of those old 1879 book covers. Inside are odds & ends of calendar, scrapbook, pastel, cardstock,  and watercolor papers. I covered the front and back in a heavy upholstery fabric I love. It's a sewn-over-tapes journal using light gray leather strips.

This is another sewn-over-tapes binding with green leather strips. I painted canvas boards using some light modeling paste.  Inside papers are Fabriano Artistico 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper and one of my painted pockets with a leaf painting.

8" x 6" canvas board covers

With both of these, I forgot a few things and did them ahead of time instead of as the last things. But, they are only for me so it's just cosmetic.

Love the details on this journal!
