Handmade Journal 2

This is the second handmade journal I've constructed.  It features a fabric cover and spine, decorative endpapers, an attached, hand-woven bookmarker, headbands, printed title page, and printed, lined journal pages with a scripture quote at the bottom of each page.  It was constructed with a hollow back and hand-stitched sections.

For the interior pages, I used the same template as for the previous journal, but I spaced the lines a little farther apart in case I want to write in Japanese.

I wove the bookmarker on an inkle loom, after using my pattern generator to create the design.

"Sing, O barren woman,
you who never bore a child;
burst into song, shout for joy,
you who were never in labor;
because more are the children of the desolate woman
than of her who has a husband,"
says the Lord.
"Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame.
Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.
You will forget the shame of your youth
and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.
"For your Maker is your husband —
the Lord Almighty is His name —
the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;
He is called the God of all the earth."
— Isaiah 54:1,4-5
