Pretty nifty little book. Love the cover and the pockets.
Thanks, Calire! I used FW acrylic inks. Thought it would give protection to the surface.
I just stumbled across your blog today- I love it! So inspiring! The lowcountry is one of my fave places and now that my parents moved to Charleston I can visit there even more! I love water colors myself and you've inspired me to do some journaling too! I love how you combined lettering with it (another fave thing of mine to do!!) I had also never realized there were such a thing as the Pentel water soluble markers. Thanks so much and keep doing what you do!! -Ashley
Ashley, Thank you so for your kind words! You'll love journaling. It keeps me from losing my 'hand' as I don't get time to paint larger works much these days.
My brother has taken several classes now on old style book binding and typesetting, and we are talking about doing collaboration. I was talking about going to the coast at one the hotels in North Myrtle Beach SC for a month or so after this season is over when it starts to get colder and do a series of oils, and I am going to do some color and graphite pencil sketches for a small journal type project he is working on – one of the other people he knows is starting to make custom paper, it should be a neat project!
Bill, Thanks for stopping by. Sounds like you and your brother will be having an art inspired trip!
What a wonderful journal! I can't wait to see the "how to". I love little books like this, so great for a weekend or a certain theme. Love your blog!
Thanks, Robin! Hope to have post on the 'how to' soon!
