Hand Bound Journals

Well I made 3 hand bound journals yesterday. Am happy with the results. I'm well into decorating covers for 3 more journals. Two of the journals are Zutter coiled, painted canvas, hard cover journals. Love this style. The other is a whimsical one, using pistachio nuts (yes I made one last year, but it was in white and different), and real gold leaf and painted with acrylics in a technique learnt recently. Click on any image to go to that journal to see descriptions and close ups etc.

I often see your name on ArtCricket2's blog so I decided to take a look at what you have going on here and may I say, I'm highly impressed. Don't know what happened, but I wasn't born with a creative bone in my body. That doesn't keep me from enjoying the beautiful work of other people. Never think of Calgary that I don't remember the '88 Winter Olympics.

The canvas covering is a clever way to hide the coil. I've got zutter journaling equipment and found that it's a great way to recycle leftover mat board from framing artwork.
