This isn't really a journal but it is a handmade book of sorts. I scanned and cleaned up the images from a 1947 calendar my mother purchased when she and dad were stationed in Germany that year. The original scherenschnitt images are all of fairy tales by the Grimm brothers. I used a fun fairy tale looking font and reprinted the Grimm tale for the 'book'. It is the first handmade book I've ever made so it was virgin territory for me. I decided to hand tear each page then sponged it with color to 'age' just the edges. You can't tell on the photo but I used four diferent ribbons on the edge. The card was made to match it for my upcoming sale.
