handmade journal

I've always wanted to handmade a book but don't know what I was going to use the book for. Finally after months of brainstorming and researching, I've finally churned out a small little A6 journal for me to write to my little baby in my tummy as a way to speak life into him before he actually comes into the world :) With my amateur photoshop skills, I sort of modified this photo that I took in Bangkok last September...

to this...

Too bad my home printer sucks, so the journal cover and back didn't really turn out to what I had initially in mind. I also invented my own method of sewing after looking at pictures of other people's handsewn books as online tutorials were a bit tough to understand. Heh.

Note to self: I need to improve my paper cutting skills. Also, taking photos of books is really tough!!! The sun, the shadow... I need to improve my photography skills on books.

Anyways, I hope baby will like the book :)
