The Labyrinth Journal by Rachgraceh The Labyrinth Journal by Rachgraceh
Ok, I'll try not to get too braggy about this, but I'm so proud of it. I've wanted to make my own journal for a long time now and thanks to this amazing, easy to follow book making tutorial: jamesdarrow.deviantart.com/art… I actually did it!

 I have no idea how long this took hour wise, hundreds. Around three months working on and off I'd say. So much Star Trek was watched while making this. I think it would have been way easier had the paper not been so bulky and had I not had sooo much of it. It also would have taken way less time if I hadn't decided to hand dye all of the pages. That took SO long! There where a few mishaps in the making, many a finger stabbed with the needle, a few pages almost set on fire, and a very bad hot glue burn. My mom always says you didn't have fun if you don't have a few scratches. Well I had a lot of fun. I got a scar out of it! Good times. But it was so worth it, I love the result and my journal smells amazing thanks to the tea!

I call it the Labyrinth journal because for some reason, it reminds my of the movie Labyrinth......even though the atmosphere in Labyrinth is largely yellowy..... Don't question it! There are gold leafed trees somewhere in the Labyrinth! I know it! I originally planned to paint the labyrinth castle behind the tree, but I'm bad at castles, so I got scared.

This is awesome!
Could I ask what kind of canvas and chipboard you used? And HOW punched the holes into each one of your sets of signatures?

I found this from your comment from James Darrow book tutorial, but that doesn't exactly specify the canvas and chipboard type anywhere :/
