A Home for Postcards


Here is the journal for week three in Sue B’s class that I’m taking online. I used silk paper for the cover and a Chinese symbol for my name. I got this in San Francisco years ago but had never used it. So then I had to have the chopsticks for the binding. I thought this would be the perfect size to hold some of my postcards.

Here’s the inside front page.

Here’s a postcard from Lynda in it’s plastic sleeve. These can all be taken out to view the backs or if I wanted to change out which ones I have in the book. This is a cool postcard, isn’t it?

Here’s a side view. It got pretty thick so I had to stop at a dozen postcards. I used foam spacers on the binding side to keep everything even and allow the book to lie flat when closed. I am now off to work on April TIF with more to come soon.

  1. Ruth, this is superb! Gorgeous colour and so striking with the black. Maybe I’m biased becaue I’m partial to black, white and red – such a classy combination :)You’ve done really well with these journals, look forward to seeing the next one.

  2. That’s a nice idea – I have thought in the past about putting pcs in an album, but worried it would get too thick – but a special album for a small selection is a nice idea.

  3. Great idea to use this for postcards. It’s beautiful! Is the red part the silk paper? It’s a little hard to tell from the photo, but really, really lovely.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
