I wanted to share a few pages from a coffee stained journal that was created today. The paper I used was 90 pound mixed media paper which I coffee stained in the oven. I tried to keep lots of open space and neutral colors to allow for lots of writing spots.
After drying in the oven and ironing the papers, I cut them to size and stitched the sheets together. I used old poem ephemera, coffee stained tags, stamps, old music sheets, digital tags and postcards, vintage lace, and buttons throughout the book.
On the cover I ran two strips of lace that cover the spine stitching.
I am very happy with how “neutral” it turned out!
Hope you are enjoy this Memorial Weekend!
