Journal cover

After I filled all the paged of this journal, I was about to stick it up on my shelf with all of my other journals, but hesitated. This black cover needs painting! So, I put it back on my table and got to work.

I love, love, love it!  I wanted the girl to blend and fade into the background and wasn’t quite sure how I was going to make that work, but it did. I hope I can remember exactly what that was!

The cover has all the things I love most.  Bright colors, texture, inspiring words and a portrait of a girl with big soulful eyes.

One thing I regret about this journal is not dating each page I did.  I blogged about almost everything in it, so I could probably figure it out if I really wanted to, but the very first page I did was in September of ’09.  That’s almost 5 years ago!! I didn’t go in order either. I just opened randomly to a page and started painting.

One cool thing is that you can really see how much my style has changed and developed over the last 5 years, it’s just not in order from start to finish. Also, this moleskine was the first one that I ever bought for painting in and it’s been a wonderful journey going through all the pages.
