Journal Project by PaperandDust Journal Project by PaperandDust
This has been a bit of a personal project for me...As it's my last high school year, I've been constructing over the last couple of terms amidst study all these Journals - I go to a private school with an incredibly small year 12 class, and as such I decided to make each of them one personally. I've known most of these guys since I was little, and it felt appropriate to send them off with SOMETHING to document the next chapter of their life, however dull or minor things may be, or hopefully exciting! So, here's the finished result. :) I gave them out at our graduation dinner, and I'm so glad I did this, truly.

Good shots of each of the journals are in my gallery!

Your journals are so amazing! I love them all! (and do I see a little Shaun Tan inspired critter hiding in there?) It was so thoughtful of you to make these for all your classmates. It must have taken a lot of time and effort.

If I passed by a store selling these, I'd be hard-pressed not to buy them all. And even if I did buy them, I'd almost be too afraid of even writing in the pages since the covers are so pretty.

Thank you for sharing your creativity with us. :clap:

These are incredible! And that is a fantastic idea, especially since after high school is when your life really starts. Everything else has just been to prepare you for it...
