Handmade Journal

Here is a look at the step-by-step process of creating a handmade journal like the one shown.

I love to write and draw, paint, collage, etc. all in one so this journal incorporates a variety of different types of papers.

Choose a piece of interesting leather, to use for the cover.

The strap is extra long so it wraps securely around the journal two and a half times and then secures around the button on the front.

Time to start journaling, sketching, painting and filling the pages! I can't wait!
