Coming back to Craftsters is like coming home again
I hate it when I am away - yet feel like I never left once I return.
Although I am working 45+ hours a week I am finding time to get back to making my art journals again.
Here is my latest journal - I designed the covers using many layers of decorative papers as well as creating my own embellishments. This is truly a mixed media creation, even using the sewing machine to stitch on paper.
The inside signatures are my favorite journaling paper - 140# index stock. I can paint, collage, stamp, draw...do virtually anything to this paper and it takes it all!! The more you layer various media on this paper the cooler it looks and feels! If it is available to you do yourself a favor and get some. I get mine at Kelly Paper here in Orange County in Southern California.
I used a Coptic stitch so the journal lies flat - it is my fav method of binding!
I hope you enjoy seeing this and it inspires you to GO MAKE ART!!!
