A journal cover I designed this afternoon using a gelli plate, collage, and stamps. (The back is similar but slightly different colors.)
5.75" x 8.25" the journal has a heavy bendable lightweight cardboard cover stapled on.
Michaels had a sale last week with journals two for the price of one. Hard to resist. These are 50 pages and are only $4. I'm involved in a journal challenge for 2015 and we have been asked to find ourselves a blank journal so we are ready to start.
I decided I'd feel much freer if I did not spend a lot of $ on a journal. Free to experiment with no big commitment involved. I have tons of journals that I use for watercolor sketches. But I think that the kind of journal that I'll be working on will be a different kind of journal than that.
The size seemed right for me too.
I'll keep you in the know on how this project proceeds.
