I created a couple of new pages in my journal. I really like how these are turning out. I wanted to show you the leather journal itself. It is made by Susie Shipman over at Island Bound Books (you can google her). The craftsmanship of her journals is amazing! Look at the stitching! And the fabulous hand made iron forged button! The paper is thick, can hold any medium, (I use acrylics),,,and they are works of art within themselves. I love them! Since I loved the journal more than my old artwork, I decided to paint over the old pages. I really love all the old texture showing through underneath. I am happy I took a chance to re-do these. Never be afraid to paint over something you have and start over. I am sure you will be happy with your new results.
