New journal, new possibilities

mixed media art journalling
I've spent a few days putting together my new journal, a mish mash of what ever I could find,  from wall paper to beautiful water colour paper, from fabric to paper bags. Each variation a new possibility, a new challenge and a new inspiration, and together it all just looks yummy and inviting. Of course, once together, I couldn't resist working in it straight away (above is the first page, and below the inside cover).

  5. My word, woman, that is one stunning journal! I love the velvet and drop cloth cover. You are going to have so much fun working in it. Please give us updates so we can see what you do. I'd love that.

    1. Thank you Michele, I love the contrast of the scruffy drop cloth (which falls apart if I so much as look at it) and the luxury of the velvet too. Already having fun working in it, I think it is going to be a Book of Faces at this stage since I've done 3 faces already- on a bit of a faces roll. But we'll see- no rules between the pages.

    1. Haha Chris, hence the fabrics, it was my Bali journal with its soft and well loved batiks that did it.
