New Journal

This is my new journal. It is just a wire bound one but it has really nice quality paper inside that can be watercoloured on. I covered it with ordinary masking tape and then painted it using a palette knife. I covered the wire with a piece of canvas that I pre-painted and stamped on the words art and journal. I haven't decided what will embellish the center yet. It feels like it should be a Celtic knot. I like the old gnarly feel to it so far. :)

I think you're right ... it's sort of screaming for a Celtic knot ... that's going to be a wonderful book to fill up.
