Simple Journal Jacket - Einfacher Journal Umschlag


My current little journal (hahnemuehle) 140gsm 20 sheets 13,5 x 21 cm - I bought it for low in a double pack at boesner vienna- is full now and needed a cover. 

I decided to do some recycling and for the sake of variety I wanted to make a kind of wrapper for it instead of working directly on the cover. Instead of sewing, washi tape was used to secure everything.

Mein derzeitiges kleines Journal (von hahnemuehle )140g/m², 13,5 x 21 cm (20 Blatt) - ich hab es sehr preiswert im Doppelpack bei Boesner in Wien erstanden war voll und brauchte nun ein Cover.

Ich beschloss mal wieder etwas wiederzuverwerten und zur Abwechslung eine Buchschutzhülle zu kreieren, anstatt wie sonst immer, direkt das Cover zu bearbeiten. 

Anstatt zu nähen hab ich diesmal Washi Tape zum Sichern und Säumen benutzt.

 I started the book jacket with an empty package of sponge fingers

 Gewerkelt wurde der Umschlag aus einer leeren Biskotten-Verpackung.

The white inside was collaged with different scraps and things.
Die weisse Inneseite wurde mit vielen Schnipseln und verschiedensten Dingen collagiert.
