Journal Journey for

This simple composition book is going to be transformed into a custom journal.

This is the first coat of Gesso on the inside covers.  
Once dried, I applied a second coat of Gesso and then after drying again, I applied a coat of acrylic peach paint. 
I would love for you to follow me as I create 30 customs journals to donate to for their 2011 challenge.  As the process unfolds, I will share my thought and all the steps to complete them.  I do not know what they are going to look like yet, I just know they will all be original custom art work.  No two will be exactly alike.  I will be experimenting with a variety of techniques.  Tradition painting, mixed media, papercrafting, and possibly fabric.  I will post each step on my blog and announce when new blogs are up on my twitter and FB. 
My first experience creating this type of journal was for the if you check them out or look at some of my older blog posts, I have a photo of the journals that I donated, as well as knit slippers and dolls. 


  1. Beth,

    I enjoyed visiting your blog for the first time today.
    So much beauty and inspiration.

    I look forward to connecting with you again.

  2. Thanks for your kind words Eydie, it's wonderful and encouraging to have visitors to my blog. I took a peak at your blog today, very nice. It appears we have a lot of common websites and blogs on our blogs. :) Very fun! This weekend, I hope to be adding more photos of my journals and my thoughts of what this journey has meant to me and where it seems to be taking me with my art. Take care, warmly and creatively, Beth xoxo
