happy to have another mixed media art journal completed with its new cover and eleven spreads…

AJJ Square journal pages

I decided to use a scrumptious piece of blue paper from my stash called “Batik Raindrop” along with white “Lace Windowpane” paper, Austrian map paper and a DiBona Design image I had tucked away (I have always enjoyed all kinds of PAPERS)…

EXPLORE Art Journal Cover

a bit of “square” layering which I will also enter for AJJ’s August “Square” challenge…

here are links to each of the spreads in my “EXPLORE” journal:

  24. You have expertly combined the vintage lady (beautiful image) with the more contemporary feel of the polka dot paper – a wonderful selection of papers. I want to reach out and touch the windowpane paper, looks so tactile.
    I am sure you are eager to start work on Journal no. 12.
