I finished a Journal:

This is a torn watercolor paper handbound journal. First I tore two large watercolor sheets into three 22" strips, so each page ends up having a fold-out.
I bound the 6 pages with a simple pamphlet binding, then added paint.
When dry, I collaged with ephemera, photos, stencils, lettering, paint, and odds and ends from the scrap paper pile.
You might have seen some of the individual images in previous posts, but I wanted you to see how the whole journal looks, with the pages opening out.
Although I started with the intention of making travel the subject, lots of owls seemed to creep in.
Go Figure.

Thanks to Teesha Moore for sharing this technique!
