My first time making a coptic journal. Yes, I signed up for another online class. This time it's Jeanne Oliver's "The Journey of Letting Go." Like I mentioned, sometimes I need a big push and this class covered quite a lot of area - from mixed media to charcoal drawings to pastels and more.
So.... I used 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper for the signatures and started with an old Basic Grey paper for my cover. On top of that I collaged quite a bit, used a bit of oil sticks, stamping and stenciling. The edges are covered with Tim Holtz's tissue tape for a little extra durability. The stencil is Dylusions.
