Another Mixed Media Journal for my Etsy Shop

A couple of weeks ago I showed you a journal (which incidentally has been sold)
 that I completed
with Isabel Hall from the U.K.
when she visited Australia promoting her new book
entitled " New Studio Techniques"

well I have completed a second similar Mixed Media Journal
 which is now for sale in my
Etsy Shop
(see above)
Once again the cover has been made from
Crash (a cross between paper and cloth),
crayons, alcohol inks, gold and copper
encaustic wax as well as scrapbooking pages.

It measures approx. 11" x 8" with
12 signatures in both printed and  plain pages in
 shades of chocolate, coffee, olive and beige.

and the spine has been sewn together with
variagated embroidery threads.

More details can be seen by visiting
my Etsy

Oh and just a few more wonderful things:

"Love yourself
Accept yourself
Forgive yourself
and be good to yourself
because without you...
the rest of us are without
a source of many wonderful things!"
