The scholarship is expressly for the entry fee and a journal. If you win, maybe you can give the book to a friend.  Smiley

I was just looking for some matches to light my fire, so to speak.

I think I might have come up with the path my book will take. Finally.

I decided to quit being such a baby and go ahead and bind my book. Now I hope I don't mess it up!

Here it is:


You can see some of the papers I used. I also popped a couple of manila envelopes in there so I can include some old postcards or tickets:


Here's the last page I did:

It says "Save everything!"

I am, after all, a scavenger.  Cheesy

Bravo rackycoo!!  How many pages did you end up using?  It seems that since I have added watercolor pages, my book is getting pretty fat!

What type of binding did you do--the same as what the original notebook was?

I love your last page--perfect for your theme!

That's not the last page of the book, it's just the last page I did.  Cheesy It would have made a nice ending, though. Oh well.

I ended up with 104 pages, so 52 spreads. Some of the pages are smaller than the others and I did bind in a couple of manilla envelopes, too. I didn't use the same sort of binding that the book originally had; I made three signatures and bound them using the method shown in this tutorial. You really need an even number of signatures to make it work correctly, so I have a modified version of that binding going on.

I'm going to try to get some more sketching done today.

*sigh* I love mason jars. Your page is lovely racky.

I haven't taken the leap yet and was wondering how many pages were in the books... 80? Hmmm, that sounds like a lot to a slacker like me. 104?!?!? No way!!!!  Cheesy

You guys sure are making this hard to resist.
