Riddle Journal by PaperandDust Riddle Journal by PaperandDust
...Or perhaps not a riddle journal =P Just another Journal I've made for this years art project, out of old canvas which I had painted with swirls. This one was made totally from scratch, and the quote on the front of it is from Tolkien's 'Lord of the rings' series.

"All that glitters is not gold,
Not all those who wander are lost.
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring.
Renewed shall be the blade that was broken,
The crown-less again shall be king."

I have always been a fan of his books, and so this was a bit of a tribute I suppose! =) The journal has a lovely blue pendant as a tie up, and is a rather durable book all-round. normal printer paper was used for the pages.

One of my favorite LotR poems and probably the world's most widely quoted as well. :love:

Amazing!!! I love how you used Sliver glitter to match the part where it says, "All that is gold does not glitter." For some reason, it fits that the glitter is silver instead of gold.
Very beautiful!
How long did it take you to make these? Surly, it must have took awhile!

Thankyou! :D Indeed - I don't think gold would have gone as well with the blue though, either!
This one took a day, since it was made purely from scratch, but they all vary. :)

this book looks like it is made from a scrap of the wolfmother wallpaper, and I wants it badly.

Love Tolkien and LOVE the idea behind the journal. When I think of riddles, he is one of people that pop up in my head. Neat styling as well!

Yay Tolkien!
The colours on this are lovely, and I like the way you did the cover, opening like one of those briefcase-folder things (for lack of a better description).

I was trying to find LotR references in the cover art, closest I could find was the spider...be neat if you did a themed journal, however vauge the references to said theme ended up being.

I love all the journals you've been doing :D
One question though: How do you make it from scratch? I mean, How do you connect the pages and cover??

Thankyou very much! Hmmm... Well, I tie the canvas and cardboard together and so on, but for the pages I bind them separately, and then glue the back one into the pre-made canvas book... It's a bit hard to explain unfortunately =/

That's okay. I'll look it up.
But i do understand it better now.
I was a bit confused because I though if you had threaded the pages then they would rip.
