This is the beginning stages of my new art journal...
First cut out 3 of the outter edges...save the long end piece...your going to need it for the next step!
Next you will want to follow Teesha Moores binding tutorial on her website . I don't read directions otherwise I would of used 8 signatures rather than 7! Believe me..an even number works better! lol
You will need a book binding punch tool, a ruler and a marking pen for this...
Teesha's binding tutorial is easy as pie...even my 8 and 9 year olds made a journal without problems...cept Mama punched the holes for them!
For my pages I used single signatures out of 140lb hot press water color paper...which you can find here .
didn't have any waxed linen thread so I used hemp cord in a bright yellow!
Here is what I had when I was done binding!!
I then cut thicker pieces of cardboard to fit inside the front and back covers of the journal and used double stick tape to adhere them.
I then spent the last two days painting all the pages! Yum! And then added old news papers found by my friend Nicole! Thanks hun!
And there you have it!!!
If you try creating this type of journal please send me the link so I can visit you!! Thanks!
