[:en]I just bound a new book using coptic stitch like my art journal, really like how it came out, especially the inside papers full of splatters. It’ll be my lifebook, you could say it’s like an art journal but I prefer to keep things separate. […]

A new journal for the broke student

A new journal for the broke student

[:en]So what happens when I’m a broke college student and you need a new journal? You make one yourself! Actually it was one of summer goals but I wasn’t thinking in doing it since my classes start next Monday. In reality lots of these goals […]

Blue Hearts & Yellow Flowers Journal

Blue Hearts & Yellow Flowers Journal

I’ve been wanting to bind a journal for quite some time, I’ve made plans and plans but I never had the opportunity to finish one, it’s always missing time or material. But I decided to give priority to this project and it’s now finished. I cut paper, bookboard and fabric. I covered the bookboard with fabric, punched the pages and everything was sewed with coptic stitch. Tenho andado para encadernar um caderno há já algum tempo, tenho feito planos e planos e nunca tenho tido oportunidade para acabar um, falta sempre algum material ou algum tempo. Mas decidi dar prioridade a este projecto e está acabado. Cortei folhas, cartão e tecido. O cartão foi coberto com tecido, as folhas furadas e tudo cosido depois com o ponto copta.


I already bound a journal before but it was not very good, this one is better, but it’s not perfect yet: Já tinha encadernado um caderno antes mas não tinha ficado nada de especial, embora este tenha alguns defeitos:

But I’m very happy with what I did 🙂 I’m really proud of it and I’m already planning in doing another one soon. Ah and by the way, here’s a photo of the first journal I bound, it was made with draft paper, nothing special but at the time I was really happy with the result even thought it was far from perfect. Mas estou muito contente com aquilo que fiz 🙂 Estou bastante orgulhosa e já estou a planear fazer outro brevemente. Ah e já agora fica aqui uma foto do primeiro caderno que fiz, feito com papel rascunho, nada de especial mas na altura fiquei felicíssima com o resultado embora imperfeito.
