I like to reuse and recycle and I’ve been looking at three years of beautiful saved Hahnemühle calendars. Stunning watercolors prints that begged to be used!
Today I dove in and made my first concertina journal using Hahnemühle Bamboo paper (90% bamboo which is a lovely fast growing renewable resource) in a 6×6-inch format. Is it perfect? Nope. But I am going to do another tomorrow and learn from my mistakes today!
I didn’t take many pictures (see what I took below) as I was figuring out what to do as I was doing it. I heard my mother waaaaay back when I was trying to sew clothes telling me to read the pattern and did I do that? NO, and so I didn’t try to follow anyone’s pattern but just went for it.
More after I get better!
