|Soft torn edges.|
There is a sense of relaxation, a permission to the journaler that it's okay to scribble out the mistakes, and to relax and just let the words or images flow.
I also like the look of cut pages - the clean uniformity and a sense of completeness. (Probably for the same reason I really love Bern, Switzerland!)
Then again, since the pages are hand-cut, they are not perfectly uniform, and I find myself frustrated with imperfections in the cuts. Afterall, I cut for uniformity and for perfection, otherwise wouldn't I tear?
What is your response to torn pages, to cut pages?
Which style do you prefer in your book, and why?
Does the function of the book make a difference in which style you prefer? For example, would you prefer cut pages in a wedding guestbook but torn pages for a scrapbook?
