Handmade Book

This is a handmade book I made this weekend. I used Arches 300lb watercolor paper for the cover. The inside papers are made with Stonehenge white paper. I love the consistency of the Stonehenge paper. It is a wonderful paper for mixed media projects. You can use it with pen, ink, watercolors, acrylics and many other media types.

I used Distress Paints and inks to stencil the cover. The stencil is by Michelle Ward.

Oh my..you have been my muse today. I have grown nieces that still expect handmade gifts from me and making them a journal would be an awesome gift.

Love the colors in this one...reminds me of the ocean.

Hugs,
