Finished 2007 Bead Journal Project

Here are a few pictures of my completed book. The pages are 5x7 and it's about 6 inches thick as you can see from this picture.

Just a few of the pages. Funny, the book stands on it's own! I just realized that.

I used peltex as a stabilizer with cotton as a fabric or painted the peltex as a backing to the beads. I then sewed each page to felt and used grommets to loop them all together. I planned each page to have about an inch more on the left hand side. I didn't know at the beginning what I'd be doing with all the pages but I did plan ahead just in case by leaving the extra on the left. Good thing!
