duct(duck) tape wars…

I have been working on painting some file folders and old book pages for a new journal. I finished it yesterday…it’s ready for further embellishment.  I made four signatures and sewed each one together pamphlet style (lots of You Tube videos showing how to do that).  Then, I attached the signatures together with duct tape.  The front and back covers were also attached with duct tape.  Then I put some more on to cover the spine of the journal.  I will show more of the book as I work in it.  I haven’t finished the front cover yet but here are two photos showing where I attached two signatures together and also the back cover.  I believe in the holding power of duct tape now 🙂

I have two doodle books I made for Diane Culhane’s class some time back. Those were fun to do.

Hopefully, I’ll be back soon with lots of completed journals spreads

    I like all your journals. Nice job on the duct tape ones. I hope yours do better than mine did. I used duct tape a few times on and in journals and it never seems to stick for very long. Not sure why…maybe it’s the heat we have here.

    Your journals and doodles are wonderful. Maybe one day I might try doing one for me.

    Exciting to be creating a new journal with your beautiful pages.
    There certainly are some great duct tapes available…who knew it would be such a great art supply too 🙂
    Your doodle books are super too Mary!
    Wishing you and yours a great weekend.
