more on the ARTful journal

I've had a couple of emails asking for more info on the ARTful journal I made, so here are some close ups. This is the cover, complete with windows (some people put little micro beads in the windows to add some movement to their covers). I used a bunch of Collections products, some old tape measure, some Tim Holtz papers, old text, gauze, flyscreen mesh and a couple of different patterned papers.

This is the spine - I'm quite fond of tying scraps of ribbon to the spine - I love the feel of it:

And this is one of the inner pages:

I hope the pocket concept is self explanatory. It's really just a matter of folding back the bottom of the cardstock and securing it on one side (in my book I used staples), and the other side is held together with the wire coil used in binding. For the front of the page I used my very favourite Odd Bird Planet stamp - Michelle's scroll, and the word April is from the Darkroom Door calendar set.
I hope that helps, thanks for looking!
