Another personal journal

I thought you might like to see yet another one of my journals. I have worked these pages over many times to get them to where I like them. I created this journal from scratch using artist canvas boards for the cover, binding, and simple stitching. These pages are painted and collaged with lots of texture added. I sometimes use bubble wrap with acrylics for texture. Witten text is added near the very end of my process.

I still have more to work on, within these pages.

This is very cute. So what do you do with your journals when they are finished? Do you sell them. Also I was wondering how things were going with our Wamco Tablet. Have you've been able to incorporate it into your art.

Thank you Fourborne - I don't usually sell my personal journals, but I am sort of tired of this one, so maybe I will sell it.

Yes, I've been playing around a lot with my Bamboo tablet. I really love it!
