Contessa Art & Junque Journal


100 page handmade journal using dictionary pages, scrapbook paper, canvas and cardstock.   The pages measure 6×5.5 and the binding is a combination of both glue and sewing.  I work on paper cut to size instead of directly in the journal.

I’m going to use this journal as an opportunity to try out new techniques and wanted to document the process.

Thank you for being a part of this, I hope that you find inspiration.  peace, xoxo.

  1. Love your blog, verrrry inspiring!! can’t wait to take a closer look at everything. And I can’t believe how many art supplies you have! Fantastic! xx

  2. I love this journal book. I did a few baby journals and gratitude journals myself,but I am far from this. Really inspiring. I agree on the comment of the lady who said she would love to look over your shoulder while working on something like this. Do you have any you tube videos on this? Or step by step posts? You are really inspiring….. Love and light Claudia

    1. Thank you, Claudia. I haven’t done any videos or tutorials…but you have me thinking about starting. Peace, friend…thank you for your comment.
