Here is a journal I made using an old book cover. This journal contains all my childhood memories, including photographs and memorabilia. I used Gesso and a brick template on the cover, then adorned with flowers.
The pages are formed by making up signatures (several sheets folded) then sewn into the recycled book cover.
Above you can see that I did use the machine for stitching on my pages, I did this before sewing any of the signatures into the cover. I really enjoyed making this journal, I was able to use so many different types of embellishments!!
