Just a little more info on this page: we cut a 22 x 30 in. sheet of Fabriano into thirds. So when we put the pages together into a sig, we had excess paper as flaps. So this page is approx. 8.5 x 10 with a flap of about 5.75 in. I really liked having the flaps. It adds so much more...If you go on to Teesha's site, you'll find a step by step of her process for binding journals. I really recommend it. What I love about binding my own journals is it allows you to use the paper you want and if you like, to paint the papers BEFORE binding them.
On this page, I used watercolor for the background and doodled over images with Souffle pens, Moonlight pens, Caran d'Ache crayons and Prismacolor pencils.
