Counter A blank book is actually full of promise: the promise of becoming lively with recorded experiences and emotions. But, too often, we depend on words alone, and forgo all the wonderful options for making a journal visually meaningful. These simple, unintimidating decorating techniques can change all that forever, and turn your personal book into a real treasure. Color wash paper rubber stamp designs add secret pockets and tuck mementoes inside. Insert tabs for fast and easy reference, or for purely visual appeal. Include "windows" between pages to enhance the sense of curiosity and discovery. Attach sentimental bits of ephemera--rose petals from flower your sweetheart gave you for Valentine's Day or a ticket stub from a play you saw one unforgettable evening. Finally, see exactly how to "build" 10 different pages that perfectly marry form and content, complete with a photo from the author's own journal illustrating the beauty of each approach.
