Upcycled Journals

I just got a bunch of miscut north Alabama topographical maps.  They have really interesting place names like Bugaboo Mountain and Looney Hollow as well as lovely green and brown patterns.  I try to balance aesthetics, functionality and environmental responsibility when making journals.  One of the lovely things about the topo paper is that when used as interior pages, you can still use both sides of the paper to write on.  Often, only half of the pages in upcycled journals are actually useable.  Very happy I was able to get these.  The fabric I’m using on some of these is also upcycled.  They are samples from a local fabric store.  Too small to be used for much, but great, high quality fabrics for covering books.
