Fauxdori journal flip-through

When I made my 'Fauxdori' (a DIY version of the Midori Traveler's Notebook), I knew I wanted to use the inserts primarily as a written journal. Eventhough I've always included writing in my Art Journals, sometimes even with big sections of the journal being used for just written journaling, I missed having a journal where the emphasis is on writing.

So I made myself a little journal, and off I went....  strangely enough, without even thinking about it, I started writing in English. Even when writing about getting my passport at the Dutch Embassy in London, I only write a few words in Dutch here and there. Not really sure why...

Of course I could not  just keep a plain journal with writing only, I had to include washi tape, Pogo printer pictures (mostly of  the Fauxdori itself) doodles, notes on scrap bits of paper and daily ephemera. Being part of two Midori-groups on Facebook (an international one and a Dutch one) has only made my love for the simple yet perfect system grow more and more every day.

So, with apologies for the tripod not wanting to do its job today, here's the flip-through. Enjoy.
