Fairest of Them All Journal

About this design:

I enjoy journaling, as well as drawing and painting, so I created this fun journal with heavy weight watercolor paper. This one is more of a coffee table journal.


Paper, paper, paper. I make my own tissue and decorate it with gold paint patterns, pasted to textured paper that I buy. I then raid my junk box for brass and copper wire, findings, beads and chain and have at having fun.

    Very pretty journal! I’ve seen several very pretty journal covers on YouTube by some artists I follow…and I think your journal is as colorful and original as any I’ve seen. Love the mix of colors you used!

    Great journal! This would be a place to display my wonderful 1967 Mardi Gras trophy bead-string. Except that someone stole it from my college dorm room at TCU, along with my Hurricane glass. Why steal memorabilia which has no memories attached for the taker? ?
