    The Noticing Journal Falls Apart

    “Be yourself; no base imitator of another, but your best self. There is something which you can do better than another. Listen to the inward voice and bravely obey that. Do the things at which you are great, not what you were never made for.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    The infamous Noticing Journal has fallen apart.

    I've glued, machine stitched, hand sewn, stapled, taped, painted and otherwise destroyed {in a good way} this book. I count 64 page "pairs" or "spreads" in this journal, and 42 are "done" more or less. Seems like it should be much more. That's the thing about altering a book. It's HUGE. It's a never-ending story. And it's overflowing.

    It's a big, colorful mess at the moment. The pages no longer fit inside the spine. So I tore all of them out, which was a really exhilerating feeling, by the way! No choice but to figure out how to stitch it together somehow. A future project.

    And speaking of binding journals, I'm taking Diana Trout's e-workshop, Longstitch, 2 Ways. I so want a shelf of hand-bound journals! Diana is the author of Journal Spilling , one of the books I highly recommend for those new to the art of art journaling.

    Great quotation. Maybe you could create a box to contain your pages? Just a thought!

    That much goodness could no longer be contained. Guess it was inevitable! xx

    I think my book may end up the same way. It is about half filled and already splitting. But I love that feeling of it bursting with colour and goodness that I created so I am not disappointed! :)
