I have filled the last pages of my art journal with backgrounds, and it is almost complete.
It's time to decide on my new art journal.
I recently completed making another handmade journal from Comfortable Shoes' workshop Make your Own Journal (highly recommended by the way.) I made it with Canson watercolour paper. I sewed postal bag stuff over the posterboard cover, I don't know what it's made of -but it's tough. I like the rugged, recycled look.
The cover before I sewed it together. There is gesso and collage underneath the postal bagging stuff.
I might use this one next, even though it's a little smaller than I would like. I like changing sizes.
Here are the journals that I have to choose from:
Oh, the one on the top left is my present journal (see top photo). It's there for size comparison. The other collaged journal on the bottom left is another handmade journal. I don't really like the guady covers. I wasn't thinking about what I wanted in a journal when I made them.
Which one would you choose?
