New Journal Begins

Front Cover!
Opening page. I haven't decided on which portrait I'm going to use yet, and I haven't found a word or phrase.
Harlequin patterns, awesome floral scroll-y rub-ons. The gray harlequin flap lifts for more writing space.
I can't get enough of this apple paper - it has so many moods. Felt Asian to me tonight. Resist/faux batik technique with a foamie stamp, then painted over it with my Pearlescent gold ... used a glass stenciling paint for the borders, torched them with a heat gun to make them bubbly & crackly. Photo is one of my own, papers from The Tuscan Rose. Just seem to be gravitating toward introspective layouts. Photo from FOCUS magazine, love it! Wanting to go inward, take time for it, be still and listening, LOOK inside. Hoping to travel to exotic new internal places. Image from my personal collection. Cat card from the folks at work. Zoe could pull this off! The Back Cover. [I got this journal at Bookstar, in the sales section. They have several different covers.]
