I did not want to use the journals I have with more expensive paper. I wanted to re-use something. I decided to use a telephone book. This journal is mostly ideas I have cut out of magazines for inspiration and ideas of what colors to put together. There are crafts I like, jewelry I like, color designs, and just pictures I thought might give me inspiration. I covered the cover and the back (see pictures and began gluing and taping pictures into my journal. I will eventually glue pages onto the phone book pages to add mixed-media journal pages.
On the inside of the cover I also made a vertical half-page envelope.
