New Year...New Journal!

New Journal for 2010
New Journal for 2010
New Journal for 2010
I treated myself to a new 3.5 x 5.5 inches Hand Book Artist Journal in cadmium green & painted a little birdie on the cover with Pebeo Setacolor fabric paints.
I'll show you the inside tomorrow!

What a lovely book. I really like how personalized it is. What kind of paper is in those journals? I couldn't tell from the website. Are the pages watercolor paper? Happy New Year!
