Stitched Paper Daily Art Journal : pages 2-5

So excited about this new daily journaling project. This was my first page 
Pages from my 2011 project have now been turned into stitched paper daily journaling - click on any photo to see it larger :

Some of the pages have very few words - I like to just enjoy looking at the interplay of colour, images, and stitch - love the tactile nature of stitch as well

Sew Wild technique here :-) Back view of this page so you can see the stitching
I keep my old sewing machine needles so when they get too blunt for stitching on fabric, I use them to stitch paper. I don't do anything special - just lengthen the stitch if I am doing straight sewing and make sure the paper is reasonable thickness - like scrapbook paper or watercolour paper. Otherwise, as you can see, decorative or zigzag or messy straight stitching all work just fine.

I am loving both the {almost} daily practice and how these pages look when complete.
