January Bead Journal Page Completed!

I went about things rather backwards this time but my January page is done and posted on my blog.

I've been thinking about different ways of finishing these pages - My original thought was to bind them into a big fat fabric book but lately I've been thinking of making them into a quilt/wall hanging - the pages are soooo heavy though, I'm wondering if that's such a good idea. Does anyone have any suggestions/insight?

Thanks so much.

Very very nice! I think a wall hanging would be great. I had thought about a book, too, but it seems to be too "hidden away". A wall piece would display them nicely. i'm sorry to hear about your mother. Maybe add one little Green Tourmaline to your piece to aid with Broken Bones. Good Luck.

My original plan was to mount the pages on a piece of white felt to create a poster-like effect and then attach the felt to a thin piece of board for hanging on the wall. It seems to me the combined weight would be 'way too much for more traditional quilt/wallhanging techniques.
