Adding extra width/length to a page for a Textile Journal

Over the last few nights I have been trying to prepare some older fragments of textile art to include in a handmade textile journal. some of the pages are not consistent so here is one that I added a bit at the top and the right hand border. The top piece is some hand dyed fabric that I practiced stenciling on and the right hand border is a strip cut from my drop cloth. This seemed to be a useful addition. The pages of this journal are back to back and on this one I have inserted coloured beads along the blanket stitch edge. I had a packet of random cloured beads someone had given me and I want sure how they would go but the look OK just sprinkled along the edge
