Towards the end of summer a friend came to visit for a week of creative activity, involving inks, paint, paper, thread, and various items from the park out back. Below is one of the lovely creations that she made during her stay - beautiful, isn't it?
Anyway, I decided to see if I could adapt this idea to make some kind of binding, even though this would be more decorative than practical. My first attempt (not shown) was a bit wibbly wobbly, since it was held together only with the warp threads of the weaving.
Consequently the journal pictured here is my second attempt, where I sewed the folios onto tape initially and then did the loom part afterwards.
Although it was just a bit of fun, and wouldn't really stand up to any rough treatment, I was rather pleased with the end result. Now I will have to weave some thoughts together to grace its pages.
