File folder journal

I have bound this journal with a good quality waxed linen (as opposed to some cheap stuff I originally used and found to yield disastrous results). I attached beads and a few charms.I have to admit I am not terribly pleased with the direction the pages of this journal has taken. I feel it's very rigid and way too linear in design. I just can't seem to break free and I'm really in a rut with it. Even though it makes me crazy to set this journal aside before completing it, I think it's the best thing to do.
So, for now this is as far as this journal is going and I'm sharing a few photos of the exterior, which I am rather happy with. The cover of this journal is made from an old stock metal tabbed file folder and measures 7 1/2" X 9 1/2".

The covers are beautiful, and if you don't like the way the interior is going then change it! Or make a page about why you don't like it? In the end its OK to set it aside - for a short or long time, whatever. It happens to us all and there aren't any rules!!
