Bird Watching Handmade Vintage Journal, Small Book, Scrapbook, Trash Book, Diary.
Size: W11cm x H15cm.
I made this vintage journal using brown cards. The journal is all firmly glued together and because of I used cards the pages are quite thick. This allows you to glue photos, graphics or anything else without it affecting the next page.
I also added a small folder on each side of the booklet using 2 illustrations printed on brown card and aged.
I created a collection of birds and nature illustrations to create the cover, which I printed on thick brown craft paper and glued on the booklet.
I then aged the cover to give it the final vintage look and added 2 string cords on both sides of natural brown jute hessian to complete the rustic appearance.
I allowed extra cord to take into account the increased volume when filled.
