My Soul Journal ...

It has taken me the last three hours or so to work out how to create a slideshow, but very loud drum roll and fanfare - here it is over on the right - just in case you miss it ....
Each page was made on one side of a single sheet of paper. To create the back to back pages of the Journal I stitched the pages together. The covers are bare chipboard, covered with gesso and acrylic paint and dabbed, smeared, swooshed and everything else. The first and last pages were stuck to the inside of the two covers, so as to keep the double page spreads running. All the pages were then bound with the Bind It All.
I didn't really want to call this My Soul Journal and everything else I thought of didn't seem right. I thought that No. 1 could be the first of many ....
I really am quite proud of this and even now I keep adding bits and pieces to it.
I hope you all like it too.
