This journal is all made by hand, the covers, the binding, everything! I am working over an old journal and re-doing it. I love how some of the old elements show through. I have ripped, torn, and re-figured the pages, adding new work as I go along. I use acrylic paints and the backgrounds are watercolor washes.
Waiting is a recurrent theme that I have in my life. I always seem to be waiting for something. I'm in tune to just enjoying the moment, but I always have a difficult time waiting.
This piece is created on 8 x 10 140lb watercolor paper. Done in acrylic and graphite.
Signed on the front.
I never seem to have the time to write a nice thoughtful blog posting. But I thought I would show you what I've been working on. This is my hand made journal. I have been slowly adding art to the pages and experimenting for a new idea that I have.
I recently started a new journal. This one is completely made by hand. I made the covers and also did the binding. The covers are canvas board and I use polyester linen thread for the binding. It measures 8 x 10 and has lots of different size pages in it. More to come,,,,stay tuned... :)
