Art journal

I have been making some art journals. They are 10.5 x 7.5 inches. Here is the first.

The cover is mixed media - acrylic paints, moulding paste, pastels, pens and some collage. This is it before I have sewn in the pages.

The front.

The back.

Some of the inside spreads. These are made from various pieces of paper, ready to be decorated and journalled upon.

Such a wonderful cover...I think I have to rethink my behavior to paint the covers, when the books are finished (even if I never have finished one of the eight ;) ♥ Conny
