Altered Placemat Journal with Doodle Stitching

So here is an update on my altered placemat journal that I started the first part of February.  I finally completed my doodle stitching.  It's nothing fancy, but it was a lot of fun.

I painted and collaged Fabriano Artistico paper and bound them in with linen thread.  I used Vintage family photos, misc. emphemera, and scrapbook papers as collage.  I will collage more as I go.  Here are a few examples of the pages that I have collaged.  They are ready to be doodled and decorated.

I finished this page today.  I am really pleased with how it turned out.  I hope this inspires you to try something new.
