March Already


This is my first post in a long time.

Even though I've not been posting here I haven't been idle so 

I thought I would stop by and share some of the projects 

I have been working on recently.

I thought I would start off the year by making my own Art Journal.

It started life as a  Strathemore Mixed Media pad.

 I used the back board as the front and back cover and bound it with coptic stitch.

I am currently working on the first page. This is how it looks up to now.

I used my new set of Neocolor II's, gesso, black acrylic and my new

full set of Prismacolor pencils.

Just look at those colours!

 I was undecided for a long time as to whether to invest is a set of

Prismacolors owing to reports of a lack of quality control 

but at the price on Amazon for a full set I decided it was worth taking the risk

and they all look in good condition. 

I also made this little book from 3x3in cardboard pages,stamped

tissue paper images and some of my citra-solv papers

Here is some pics of the finished book.

And just before I sign off here is one last pic.
