For Scott

Scott is my friend. He is off to a new job, working with farmers, so I made this for him. Similar to the multicolored journal, it uses green/brown tones in colored cardstock for paper. Multi-coptic stitch binding. I pasted collage from his new job onto the inside covers for added personality and the cover opens up so you can see a giant tree across both sides. So nice.

Multi-Colored Journal

I had a travel journal once that had multi-colored paper thick enough to paste ticket stubs, etc in and it is still one of my favorites. It was the inspiration for this one and I have come to love the multi-coptic journals made with hard colored cardstock. Cover is bookboard and decorative paper. This one went to Hillary, which makes me happy. I am going to make more of these!

Birthday photos

My first 'landscape'. It was made to store photos for a birthday in addition to personalized comments. Hand ripped Italian Velata paper. Multi-coptic stitching, and inserts so the book can grow. Some of the inserts were made from the cover material- it makes the spine pretty!
