Vintage Page Designs: Forest Journal

December 5, 2012

Forest Journal

I walk in the forest most days of the year and take lots of pictures.  So, I created a 5 hole pamphlet stitched journal to store these photos plus quotes, poems and ideas about the forest.

The journal measures 9" x 6" and the cover is made from a piece handmade Indian paper that the has silhouettes of leaves on it.  I purchased it on a trip to NYC last fall and of course, have been hoarding it ever since!
The journal pages are a mixture of textures - handmade papers, coffee stained card stock and even an old paper bag.  You can see some tags peeking out of the paper bag in one of the pictures below:

I still need to add a title on the front but I've already started to add some pictures and will continue through the winter months. 

Talking of journals, I plan to do a Project Life scrapbook in 2013 and purchased the pocket pages from Amazon yesterday.  I want to give my album a vintage twist.  Anyone want to join me?  Here are a few designers who created beautiful Project Life albums in 2012: Ali Edwards, Deb Duty and Michelle Wooderson.

Have a creative day!

What a lovely journal! I love the woods, too, and I pick up little things there almost every day: acorns, hickory nuts, sticks, twigs, and even bits of tree fungus. As a writer, I appreciate having inspiration from the woods as well. Nifty post, Ali - creative ideas as usual.
