Janice did a wonderful job presenting
HOW TO MAKE A JOURNAL USING ONE FULL SHEET OF WATERCOLOUR PAPER
The journal ends up being 8" X 10" and 16 pages. There are fold overs on several pages to add interest.
Using a full sheet of paper, you need to divide the sheet into 3 equal parts 10" high. Tear or cut along the lines. From the left edge of the paper, measure in 16" and fold the left side to that mark. For the left over piece on the right edge, you can either fold in or under. Repeat for the other two pieces of paper.
Stack the 3 sheets, alternating flap on one side, then the other. Pamphlet stitch the pages together using either 3, 5 or 7 holes. The outside sheet becomes your cover and you can give that flap an extra fold to match the thickness of your book so that the flap folds over the front of the book. You can decide on a closure for the cover.
It has been interesting to see what others have used their books for. All about the Seattletters Conference in Bellingham, a showcase for eco dyed papers, collage or still pristine like mine!
