New Journal

Ok, so what happened to me blogging at least once a week? I had a lot of momentum going there for a while!

One interesting thing I did on the art front was start a new journal.

My sister gave me a ~*BEAUTIFUL*~ Papyrus journal for Christmas that I have been waiting to use ever since. But I was in the middle of another journal and had to force myself to finish that one first. Ok, so I got close to finshing and decided that was good enough. :) I tend to do that anyways--I don't think I have ever gotten to the point where I finish a journal to literally the last page.

Anyway, this gorgeous journal with all differently colored handmade papers inside in shades of pinks was just waiting for me. Except, I was a little intimated by it because it was so beautiful, you know? I decided I needed to just have at it and alter it a little. "Ruin" it, if you will.

I put lots of layers of paint and papers on the outside covers and the inside front and back covers. Now it feels like I can work in it a little bit. I've only done one entry so far, which I haven't taken a picture of yet.

But this is what the journal looks like:
