Handmade paper for the first time

Making handmade paper was quite fun. They turned out great and I used some of it to create embellishments, pockets, and belly bands for my junk journals. The only thing I don’t like about handmade papers they are not great for watercolors. Maybe there other ways to make paper that can work with watercolors. I will try and research more.

Handmade Junk Journal

Hello beautiful people! I think this is my 22nd junk journal that I made so far and many more to do. I remembered my first junk journal that I made it was a disaster. I was watching a youtube tutorials and they are using double sided tape to put together a junk journal. So I tried using double sided tape and at first I was happy because it was going so well but when the weather gets cold my pages fell apart. So I researched youtube for more tutorials and learned how to sew and found the best glue to use for the pockets and tucks. It worked perfectly and never had a problem with my pages falling apart. I never used double sided tape for any of my pages for years. Please check out my flip through video to see the inside of this junk journal.
