Hand made art journal
I made this art journal by hand. It is made with 140 lb watercolor paper and 300lb covers. Binding is made with fabric. Pages are painted with a background wash, then bound. My only challenge was making the binding and have it dry enough to work with. Luckily we had some hot days here in Seattle and it dried quickly, but when the winter comes I'm not so sure. I just love the fabric, it is sort of vintage looking with swirly circles and the colors matched my cover painting perfectly.
