new journal...

I did a few more things to my new journal.... i added a flap and closure.

 I liked the idea of the flap and then one the inside cover I added more...

I purchased a drop cloth that you use for painting around the house, cut a strip and painted it and added "words" which were clippings from magazines and books...
It reads:
I heard my voice loud and clear
The time is almost upon me.
She thought for a moment.
"It was your dream, remember? I
just came along for the ride."

I really liked the feel of the painting canvas and it was easy to sew through by hand when I attached it to the inside cover. I also added some beads and "trinkets" to the strings that were left from sewing on the signatures.  My goal is to use this for Art Everyday Month... AEDM and learn techniques for making a journal from The Journal Junkies and Journal Spilling books.  Thanks for looking... going to try and finish a zentangle I have been working on.  Happy Halloween!


  1. I love what you've done with your journal! What a great idea!
    Have been looking at your zentangles as well - love them!
    All the best through AEDM!

  2. What a great art journal you've created to add to this month! looking forward to seeing it "blossom"
