New Handmade Journals

This week I completed four journals for the boutique. I used some paintings I had done with texture and acrylics for the covers, and I think they turned out pretty cool! The painting techniques are from Mary Todd Beam's book Celebrate Your Creative Self, which is a LOT of fun. The beads on the book marker cords are my handmade papers beads, and the end papers inside are my metallic papers, both of which are shown in previous posts.

Here are the fronts and backs of all four journals.

I love that Mary Todd Beam book also, and I use similar technique for acrylic paintings. I use it to teach acrylics also. It is interesting how everyone's work looks so different. I love your use of it on books.
