Today i'm sharing a journal book cover..


 A beautiful hand bound journal filled with recycled paper pages 
a gift given to me last Christmas from the very talented creator 
of PaperBabe Stamps Kim Costello, it's blank canvas inspired 
me to design a cover dedicated it to PaperBabe things..

holds a die cut and stamped portrait head wearing CELESTIA 
pre cut hair all coloured using paint, copics and pencils. 


With lace added to protect it's hand stitched spine a 
fibreboard Whimsical word glued to greyboard is distressed 
and painted to compliment colours and complete it's design.

  7. Tracey, what a great journal cover! I love the tattered and used appearance it has. Your painting and coloring is awesome! Very cool portrait framing. The word create begs us to open that journal to have a peek inside. Your fountain pen suggests we might read some secret thoughts.

  12. Honestly, you never cease to amazing me with your colouring, I have run out of adjectives to describe it! You have taken a beautiful gift and made it even more beautiful, she looks wonderful in the frame and I just adore the stitching. Beautiful work as always.

    Blogger is still playing silly beggars and rejects most of my comments but I will keep trying, in the hope it may rectify itself one day soon.... Hugs, Anne xxx
