This is the front cover. Still kind of boring, though I added some Japanese fabric tape to the spine. I'll add more "stuff" to the front.
I thought it would be fun to try some different media and colors on a two page spread. Here is a test page with water colors mixed around and a rubber stamp with dye ink on wet paper and then on dry paper. I sprayed water and watched everything run together. Highly entertaining.
I'll post more pictures as this little journal goes wild. In the meantime, a test page is a great way to break in a new journal. Try it! Just smoosh around some paint or markers or whatever you have.
