Bookmaking with Japanese Maple Leaves

I couldn't help but start working on my storyland journals.



One of the sheets I recently bought (see above), from WashiPaper, is called "Maples Leaves in Greens Washi Yuzen Chiyogami." Don't know what all of that means, but I love the feel and the coloring of the paper. And it's perfect for the fall season.

The book will be approx. 5.5" x 4.5" and have about 70 blank pages inside. Still have to sew it up, and see how it turns out... I cut all the "text" paper at work yesterday, on a large paper cutter.

I too love the feel of Japanese Washi paper. Maybe I will find some in Japan when I go next month.

Gorgeous and useful. I bought some Japanese paper once with absolutely no purpose in mind, just because it was so pretty.
