My friend, Valaine and I had a journal exchange and this is the one I made for her. I created the cover with a piece of canvas that I painted and embellished. I love this journal! It's my favorite by far and I'm so glad that Valaine can enjoy it for herself.

Today I decided to go outside and take down the Christmas lights...I know...a little late, isn't it. Cleveland joined me and posed long enough for me to take his photo.

I gessoed watercolor paper to begin with and I drew into the gesso while it was still wet to create texture. I then added paint, ink, charcoal, carbon, chalk, vintage newspaper, rubber stamps and text. I used an image transfer technique to transfer a drawing of my daughter to the surface of the paper, then enhanced the drawing with charcoal. I splattered paint, scratched with a blade, rubbed the surface with sandpaper to create texture. Fun, fun, fun...
