|Mini-Journal No. 4 - 03|
The valley fold of the mini-journal has been a worry for me. I have spent a lot of time thinking about it. Part of me decided to just go with what happens when opening and closing the journal spreads. I started to say, “It is what it is.” However, I have grown to not like that phrase. So probably, “Just go with it is better for me.” You see ephemera that goes over the fold ends up with tears with usage. Since I have thought about it a great deal I came up with a solution in mini-journal no. 6. Putting washi tape down first over the fold line gives it more support. I am also thinking of printing ephemera on synthetic printer paper for more support.
