This is the front cover of a journal I put together using six, 6 x 12 pieces of card, creating extra flaps. So the pages are 6 x 6 or 6 x 3 but the 6 x 3's create shutters over some of the 6 x 6 pages. I used brads and a piece of hemp cord as a closure.
This is the very first page you see when you open the cover. The inside of the flaps have been covered with a mask patterned card to hide the backs of the brads.
This is one of the 6 x 6 pages with it's two 6 x 3 shutters with borders and images.
The pages on the left are two 6 x 3 pages closed, so you are seeing the outsides and then another 6 x 6 page.
This one shows two 6 x 3 pages closed, a 6 x 6 page and another 6 x 3 page.
So the 6 x 6 page in the middle will be covered up with the 6 x 3 flaps either side.
Once all the pages and shutters had some sort of imagery on them I went back in and coloured all the backgrounds.
Added some stamping, doodling and low and behold, some writing!
Also added some pre-printed text to some of the pages too.
I just love how the page on the left came out. The two pages on the right form the shutters to the 6 x 6 page underneath it.
And another 6 x 6 with a 6 x 3 flap each side. There are more pages as there 21 in total, but I didn't want to bore you too much!!
And finally an aerial view so you can see how the shutters fold in.
