would you believe that the cover of this journal started out as a paper bag?! this is the fourth project in my online journal class with sue bleiweiss. the wrap-around construction is similar to that of our project from week one, but this time instead of using fabric for the cover, sue taught us a technique using a brown paper bag. and it seems that not all paper bags are alike...i used a lunch sack because it's a little lighter in weight, but i think that next time i'll use some of that brown craft paper on a roll (the type that's used to wrap packages). it's much heavier in weight and it would be interesting to see the difference in the two journals.
for the inside cover, i used a piece of decorative paper that has a collage of postage stamps all over it. i also wrapped a smaller piece of handmade paper around each of the three signatures, just to give it a little interest. just like my other projects with sue, this was a fun book to put together. i'll keep you posted on my next journal!
