Time to start a new journal

This is my new cover on my latest journal. This is a Hemp watercolour journal by Green Field Paper. I really like these journals as they have very sturdy pages for watercolours or paints and are very reasonably priced. I was inspired by Kellie to use my hands. LOL! I started with a base of black Gesso with watercolour crayons and then white paint for the hand. I then coloured the hands with Golden's Fluid acrylic paints and stamped gold images over top. I am very happy with the result.

Live Long and Prosper

The hazards of the job is getting your hands dirty. Hee hee hee! This is after I pressed my white painted hand on the crayoned cover. I think as much crayon came off on my hand as white paint went on to the cover. :)

Gorgeous, rich colours, Patti!
I love the keyhole in the palm, what a great touch.

This is the best yet! :-)
