Collate Journal from Sweet Jessie

Today I was cheered by finding a little package in the hallway when I got home. Jessie finished collating and binding all of the papers sent to her from around the world and I received my lovely collated journal today! Thanks Jessie-it's lovely-far too lovely to use I fear-but you never know! It was fun looking through to see the variety of papers used. I like the way that Jessie has put them together-there are some lovely contrasts and links. I also love the professional way the journal is bound and the printed covers, the back one listing all of the participants in the project.
Free pencil included!
The paper on the right is beautiful-stencilled and sparkly.
And meshy spotty on the back.
Love this page! It gets better and better.
No, run little boy, run!
Such a good pairing of pages.
Blogger is doing the sideways picture thing again-it leads to variety I suppose.
A see through page!
I would love to see the rest of this book.
A little man and his great big glove.
Thanks again Jessie, I will treasure it!

Your Collage journal looks fantastic. I do hope you use it.

It looks amazing! I know how difficult it is to use something that seems so special - one is afraid to spoil it. But you have to consider the purpose - it is MEANT to be filled with your own bits! I also have a beautiful handmade journal that we got as a wedding gift (many, MANY years ago!) and my one goal this year is to use it for collages. So let's make a pact - I will use mine if you will use yours!
