Journal Your Way – Free Project

August 09, 2013, 14:32 pm  Posted by Lark


Earlier this week, Journal Your Way by the venerable Gwen Diehn published in paperback for the first time! In celebration, we would like to share a free project with you. This choose-your-own-adventure journaling book gives you the tools you need to pick the paper, binding, and cover that you like, and mix and match them to build a truly custom journal. I chose my favorite binding and cover techniques to share, which you’ll find below in separate pdfs.

First, here are the tools and materials, along with a guide for choosing paper.













.Here are the very simple multiple-pamphlet binding instructions.














And finally, the beautiful sewn-in cover.


Journals with the leather covers like this one have always made me want to stow away on a river boat and write about my adventures. That's weird, isn't it?
















I hope you’ll enjoy this little gift. And, get yourself a copy of Journal Your Way for more building blocks like these, and some cool surprises! (Hint: There are envelopes inside the front and back covers containing cool bonus materials. I LOVE books with pockets!)
