Journal for a friend

I was asked on Saturday to make a journal for a  mutual friend going through a serious illness.
 It went out in the mail today.

I am learning / practicing conservation book binding, it is something I hope to get really good at some day and do it on a commission basis for Maxam Made and for local printers and artisans.  But for this project because of the time constraints I went with an wire binding.

I made this 8x10 size and used 60# watercolor like  paper  so that this really would be an all purpose journal.
I used a Mariposa Stack as this friends favorite color is Orange and I wanted to be really cheerful

This is the cover

I added pages with pockets

One of the pockets I added a lot of the scrap pieces for her to incorporate.

Hopefully this will be a blessing! She has a tough road ahead , the journal came with love and prayer!

I hope you are having a great day!
Thank you for stopping by
