Awhile back I showed you a few spreads in my sewn pages journal (see post here) and I wanted to share a few more - I have been working in it and it is becoming one of my most favourite journals I have ever made. I wanted to share the stages as I am working in this journal a bit differently, adding to the pages randomly rather than working through it in order.
These photos are before I did much journaling in it... (except the first spread)
I always love using envelopes to stuff private thoughts in.
I mixed new and old pages - above an 1800's fashion catalog and early 1800's book bag mixed with a modern stripped glassine envelope (above).
More old mixed with new above and below.
Below I used an ad in a local magazine that had frames, I cut the center of the frames out and will fill them (I already used the sewing machine to add one vintage photo).
Here are my signatures all put together ready to be bound into the cover (more on that in a bit!).
I wont bore you by showing you every.single.spread, but this should give you an idea of what I am working with!
I will share with you some of the same spreads with things added to it, and some journaling started soon!
