I have just finished making a couple more small folders (about 6"x 5").....
they are deocrated with layers of paint and ink
and my hand carved stamps.
When you open them, they are full of various weights of small pieces of paper just waiting to be drawn or painted onto.
I am often afraid to draw or paint in my journals, as I am afraid I will make a mess of it, or draw something I don't like. This way if I like it I keep it in the folder, and if I really don't like it, I can throw it away.
This one I made for myself some time ago.... it is beginning to have a number of drawings and paintings in, and I find it so nice to use.... never worrying about messing up!
