Largest Journal to date

Back to journal making. I've just completed another one to upload to my Etsy. This is the largest one I've made. They just seem to be getting bigger, not in height, but more pages. SOLD. Thank you.



This is the front cover, it has a piece of copper that I embossed with a poppy seed head then coloured with inks. This is enclosed in an old slide holder.





This page also has a piece of embossed and coloured copper. I added a metal element to this piece too.

They just keep getting better Ro. I love the colours you work in which obviously are a large part of the impact, but a blind person could still enjoy your journals by exploring the pages with their fingers - there is so much texture on each one.

ArtPropelled said...

Wow Ro they just keep getting better too and my fingers are twitching to get hold of those pages. All that lovely texture!

ArtPropelled said...

I hadn't read the comments until after posting and now looking at Heathers comment it's as if I read her mind.
