Words and Supply list by Janet Hedley:

Journal Making 101 November 12 , 2011

We are going to construct a journal using whatever papers you like, sewing them with linen thread, and covering book board with varying materials. You can make journals for painting, colored pencil, pastel, pen and ink, pencil, or writing depending on the materials used.


What you need to bring:

1.The PAPER you desire to have in your journal.

I will have Fabriano HP 90# WC paper for $5 a sheet and Arches 140# CP WC paer for $7 a sheet if you need those

I have used bogus paper, Tiziano, parchment, smooth Bristol, and other writing papers, depending on whom I was making the journal for. (These make great presents!)

2. RULER (If you own a quilting ruler, that’d be really helpful – also a self healing mat – if you already own one)



5. Poly cotton or cotton FABRIC to cover your book with some iron on interfacing or Some type of PAPER for the cover (Michaels has a good selection) or Aluminum foil

(I will have some of those items – I don’t have much fabric because I gave it all away when I decided to not quilt anymore )

6. A PHONE BOOK – this is necessary to use to punch the holes in your paper


What I will provide:

The book board, the linen thread, the needles we’ll be using, the glues, sponge brushes, a handout so you can do this at home all by yourself.

What would be helpful to have – don’t go out and buy these things:

1.An awl – this is like an ice pick – very helpful to poke holes in the 140# paper (raid your husband’s tool box for this)

2.Spring clothespins (I will have a bunch also – helpful for clamping when you glue your fabric to the board)

3.Utility knife with sharp blade (again – hubby’s tool box)

4.Some sort of metal edge –( I have one which is helpful to hold on the cutting line when using the utility knife to cut the book board)

5.A bone folder – if you intend to make more journals, go ahead and buy one of these. You can get it at Ellis Art Supplies

I have all the above – it will just be easier if we have a few more…

I’m looking forward to playing with you!
