Here is the cover of my journal. The letters are stickers and I haven't decided if I'm going to add an image or not.
Here is another view- it was a lot of fun!
Here is the new journal I've started:
As you can see it's huge! It's actually a sketch book and I think I'll use it just for experimenting in.
And since it's a bound book, I put masking tape down the center and then gessoed just that area, as Julie Balzer suggests. I didn't gesso the whole page and the paper is thick enough I didn't have to glue pages together. I'm excited about this because I will be able to put in larger images and have more room for doodling etc. We'll see if I can really fill these pages :)


  1. Isn't it wonderful when you have completed an art journal book? Each page is apart of you :] Art journals are so meaningful <3
    Have you had a chance to use the "mixed-media" spiral bound book created by canson?
    So, what is next on your creative list...? Can not wait to see.
    Take care.

  2. Having a completed journal is great. I always feel such a sense of accomplishment when one is filled with art. Your new journal looks just right. I like working in a larger journal.
