I bought some cartridge paper from Paperchase to make an art journal from scratch. Good old YouTube, from watching many, many videos I kind of got the jist of making a book. The binding looked confusing, but I managed to muddle through, its an emma styley, it looks pretty and functions very well!!
I've started journalling it already, mostly with pencil and the odd doodle when I find something cute or inspirational. I might add some pictures at a later date, but some might be of a personal nature.
