I picked out paper for the cover, spine, and inside cover. Cut out the cover and spine pieces from some thin cardboard I had. (The Dahle cutter is amazing!)
I had to let the spine dry......and yet bend it back and forth so it would be able to move properly.
Glued the cover pieces on the front sides.Let them dry a bit and turned them over. Trimmed the corners. I clamped down all the edges and let them dry. Then I glued down the tapes and let them dry.
I did another clamping job--hehe! Let it dry well.And here is the finished watercolor journal!! TaDa!!! Took all day--lots of drying time. I am pretty happy with it.
Meanwhile--been catching up with letters still and finally got some Netflix DVDs again yesterday. Hadn't had any for almost a week--some glitch in the system--supposed to reduce our bills by 15%. ?? I'll let you know if they do. I am finally able to continue on with the last season of The Wire and the second season of The X Files. :)
Now tomorrow my folks are coming for a visit before they head back to Florida for the winter here pretty soon. Grandson, Dagan, and lovely wife, Leah, will come over after work. Supposed to be 90 degrees today and almost 90 and windy tomorrow. Not expected to rain, anyways. I should rest up today. :)
