I made a journal awhile ago.
And I shared a glimpse of it back in June.
I love this thing!
First off, this old day book is a fantastic and odd size of about 6"x15".
It's tall and skinny.
I thought it would be the perfect place for me to practice my hand lettering.
I sewed in four signatures of watercolor paper
and then got started on the intro page.
I added only a thin strip of paper to the inside cover, instead of covering the whole thing with paper.
There was something I found very pleasing about the original inside cover.
Maybe the contrast of the original paper color and the bright white of the watercolor paper.
I happened to have an antique sheet music cover page sitting on my desk next to me when I started to draw and found myself inspired by its graphics.
They made everything so pretty back then.
To say I am happy with my new place to practice lettering
is an understatement.
I'm pleased as punch.
