i made something new today...a mini coptic bound journal.
i am finally starting to come out of my creative rut, but i figured it would be best to come out with something simple at first. so, i created this journal. it's made of 100% recycled materials. yep- everything that went into this journal came from remnants of another project. heres the list-
*the dark red waxed linen thread that i used was the last bit off of that particular spool. it was just barely long enough!
*i go through a LOT of 24"x18"artist drawing pads...the pad has a very sturdy cardboard backing, which has come in handy so many times- such as this time...that's what the covers are made of :) so i keep all of my thick cardboard backings from the sketch pads
*i just cut lots of paper for my "small" journals...i always end up with really nice sized pieces of leftover paper after all of the cuts are completed- the best part is that they are already almost to the size i need them for these journals, so it makes cutting the paper to the right demensions super quick!
*the beetle print came from a pocket book that i messed up a long time ago. so the image was used here :)
*the orange cardstock came from an end paper scrap from a previous journal.
so that's the list- it's cool for ME because it was super easy to make, and i do plan on making lots more, and also because i'm big into recycling. it's cool for the BUYER because i can offer it at a much lower price than my regular journals since not as much work goes into it. yay!
okay, i better go join our company in the living room! take care, friends!
