Quirky Dutch Summer

Quirky Dutch Summer is a series of weekly blogposts at Marit’s Paper World with inspiration and tutorials.
In the first week Marit showed us how to make a journal from a cheap canvas. Unfortunately the size I needed was sold out, so I bought a smaller canvas for a small journal. I just couldn’t wait to get started!
 It took me a few days to decorate the outside of my journal, . . .
. . . after painting the inside.
Then it was time to make my signatures. Luckily I had some good drawing paper in my stash in the right size. After binding the signatures into my cover I decorated the ends of the threads with some donut beads as a nice finishing touch.
In the meantime I bought another canvas in a bigger size for a second journal, which will be a variation. But first I get started with the second Quirky Dutch Summer week, which is a great guest tutorial from Jenny de Bode.


  1. Je journal is echt geweldig leuk geworden Annet en ik zei het al hè, die 'donut-kralen'aan de binding... geweldig effect! Ik heb er volgens mij nog een aantal en ik ga ze zéker op deze manier gebruiken, zó leuk!!!

    1. Dank je wel , Marit. Leuk dat ik je kan inspireren met de kralen!
