pixel heart notebook

I love to write and to draw when i get bored on the train and was looking for a new diary today.
I came across a blogger/etsy seller/ crafter on a forum a while ago who goes by the name Lertsis. She makes all of these really nice journals and so I decided to make my own.
I did a test run before I used any expensive materials. Here’s my first attempt:

I used strong brown wrapping paper for the cover,

white cartridge paper for the insides,

and a layer of grease proof paper between the two to mask the underside of the pink stitching.
I know ‘grease proof paper’ doesn’t sound so nice but it does the trick!

    woah cool idea, I should start drawing again. I was never really that good but I enjoyed it. Maybe one day I will make my own journal instead of making another holga hack πŸ™‚

    Thank-you. I could make you one if you’d like?

    Send one with a Holga and I’ll customise it for you πŸ˜‰
