Journal for No Reason Flip Thru.

Here is a short video of my first Journal for No Reason put together. It isn't completely done. On the pages that don't have much color on them I will collage some deli paper wipe offs. Also will reinforce the spine more and do something with the cover.

I love this journal. Mainly because of the years I have been using the papers as wipe off papers. So many memories. But in all honesty I would not intentionally set out to make such busyness.

Thanks for looking!

Putting the Journal for no reason together.

Time to put the Journal together. First I laid out all the pages in order that I wanted them in. Decided it would have 5 signatures with 4 or 5 folios in them.

Next I sewed the smaller pieces to the larger pages.

For the cover I decided to use brown craft paper.

I stacked each signature like I wanted then sewed them on to the craft paper cover.

After sewing all 5 signatures in, I was concerned that the spine wasn't strong enough. So I glued some reinforcements to the spine. I will probably do more to reinforce it.

See the next post for a flip thru of the journal.

Thanks for looking!

Journals for no Reason

I came across this u-tube video Journals for no Reason. I am so inspired and excited. I have so many book papers, music sheets and deli papers that I have wiped off extra paint onto. Looking forward to making my own Journals for no Reason.

For my 1st Journal for no reason I've decided to use the papers that I had been using for years underneath my projects and/or in between pages of my journals to protect other pages. Here is a short video of them.

I also decided to use the paper from my spray booth.

Went ahead a put a new paper in the spray booth.

Here is a video showing the papers after I cut them to size.

Found a few more things to add.

On some of the pages I added more paint.

Now to decide how to put this together. Will post a video showing the final product when I am finished. Thanks for looking!
