The first spread of the journal got finished on Friday. So here are the pictures!
The back cover is a continuation of the front cover design.
The journal pages and cover are put together with a Western multiple signature as described by Alisa Golden in Making Handmade Books-- lots of book projects and methods there!
The journal is bound with a ribbon tie to accomodate pages with added dimension.
The quote from which I drew the journal theme in on the back of the front cover.
Some notes of welcome are on the first page.
This is the first spread. I decided to go with a vertical design. I collaged the black-and-white scene the bottom, then ripped it before pasting it on the page. The background is sponged acryllic. It is further decorated with star sequins, gold foil bits, and metallic ink.
Since the pages in this journal are small and there are enough of them, I've used the last three pages for signature boxes.
This is the last signature page and the pocket for contributed ephemera and goodies.
