There is something about making journal covers that I find especially liberating and fun to do. Quite often what begins as a potential journal cover evolves into a piece of art – which results in delight but also frustration when I have achieved success but on cheap paper! Producing a journal cover, especially with layers of acrylic, results in paper that has a leathery feel to it, perfect for the thickness needed for a book cover. I always have several journals of different sizes on the go at the same time, so i don’t have to wait for pages to dry and can move – like a dance- from one to the other. On a roll!
