So I love making handmade art journals..but I really dont enjoy any kind of complicated stitching technique..its just not my thing…in other words, I dont love doing it. Ive tried a few different stitches..the coptic was one and it took me many times to get it right..I love how it turned out but I guess due to time constraints, I just would rather do a simple stitch..and with all of the journals Ive made..Ive never had one fall apart or even loosen up over the years so ..I am content with this easy pamphlet stitch to keep my handmade journals together forever..Lolol.. You can add a few extra holes according to the size of your journal..this one is very large..12 x 14..but I just chose the 2 holes for the purpose of the video..and keeping it simple..This journal will be my 2015 Documented Life Journal ..it is made with 140 lb watercolor paper and some heavy cardboard for the covers ..I have a video here on how I made the cover
