I finished my very first hand bound journal. I made the cover from canvas that I gessoed, textured, painted, and embellished. I also added a photo transfer and some text. I made four signatures and sewed them to the cover using waxed thread. I completed another one today that I will post some photos of tomorrow.
I have been writing in journals for twenty years and I have stacks of them, now I can make my own as well as my very own sketchbooks.
