Re: Art Journaling

My youngest child does not draw or paint or craft or do art of any kind. But McKenzie writes. A lot. I decided to see if I could make a diary type of journal. Part of the challenge would be finding lined sheets that could be used like notebooks. I wasn't quite sure how I'd make the signatures.

Shopping at Michaels, I found some adorable notebooks that were just a little smaller than the covers I'd already cut from matte board. I bought three books at $1.50 each, thinking they'd be a perfect fit for the piece of spine board. In putting this together, I realized that only two of the little books would work.

I opened the books to the centre and wound my cord through them. The two pieces of twine didn't look very nice, so I braided the loose ends around the wound pieces.
