Soooo….how the Meadori journal came about was I received a request to make some Midori style coloring pages for inserts in the Midori.


I knew what the Midori was and how it worked but never bought one, mainly because I only use handmade journals. So while researching some coloring page inserts..I thought..Wow ..I want to use some of my cut canvas from this piece here for some covers and try my own style

rr I gathered my materials..papers…cut canvas..elastic..and I put together my first Midori style journal.

It is actually very easy..I used 9 x 12  watercolor paper, folded in half..1/8 inch elastic for the binding..mixed media  painted pages for colorful inserts..and a few coloring pages to add some interest.  You can add as many or few as you like..and they are easily removed or switched out as you finish a journal page.  I just love this idea, that you can keep rotating..adding a new style of paper, and removing to make room for more. Hence I was thinking of a name for my new journal and Mead-Ori just popped in my head..!!So try making your own..and you can use any paper at all ..whatever you have on hand..and then add new pieces as you get them..!Have fun..!
