The truth is, most of us discover where we are heading when we arrive.
Before summer I bound myself another Art Journal with watercolor papers and a cloth cover. I wanted to make this last summer, but never got around to finishing one. But this year I was better prepared, and had worked a couple of evenings putting together a textile for the cover. It is a mixed media embroidery piece, in the haphazard style I like, with a lot of seed stitching on top of all the surfaces. I have then glued that textile piece to a hard cover, so I get my inside pages protected just like I want them.
This art journal is filled with watercolor paper, and my idea was that it would be full by now. It’s not, so I’ll keep creating in it through autumn and maybe into winter, who knows?
