This is a 3-tiered collage journal - inspired by Karla Alg/kagedfish. My book is smaller than the one she makes in the tutorial because I just used a piece of cardboard I had in my stash:

 


Here is the tutorial:

This book has 9 signatures with 3 pages in each. I used a Recollections card stock set from Michaels (can't beat the $2 price tag!) Here is the first set of three signatures added:



Here is the completed book:




My pages are 2.5" tall and 4.25" wide - Karla's pages are taller.

And here are the first 3 collages - just using up leftovers and scraps:









Now the cardboard was cheap and old so when I pierced my holes with my awl, the cardboard split and cracked.
Boo hoo.




So a little duct tape fixes that problem!





Yay! Duct tape solves all the problems!

I love this!  You are so talented!  I love the way the signatures/pages are in three parts!

Great idea. Large pages are often so overwhelming, this is a great way to make so many more amazing little pieces of art.

Very cool Susan. I love the different layers! Also using scraps. I'm making a kind a junk journal for my daughter's Birthday so I might put it on here somewhere to show what I made. Great designing & using scraps! &#128518;&#128156;

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
