New journal - volume seven
I think it's pretty cool that I'm starting 2007 with volume seven, and even cooler that I've filled six compo books since I started painting the pages.
I finally decided to take apart a compo book and put it back together with pages from old books interspersed with the regular pages. What I really wanted to use was a graph paper compo book, but I haven't been able to find one. I hate the thought of paying $5 shipping and handling for a three dollar item or I'd order online.
This one will be fine and maybe one with the squares will appear for the volume eight. I used a variety of papers which will be showing up in my journal pages in the days to come. Volume five also was done like this. It's a challenge to use the papers.
I'm also planning a different cover for this one. We'll see. I want to participate in the Take a stitch Tuesday Challenge, so I'm hoping to work on a crazy quilt cover for this journal. I haven't done a fabric cover because I always journal on the front inside cover. I'm leaving this one blank on purpose.
