Dollar Store Art Journal...

Week 34 Life Book 2014 led by Catt Geller.  We are to create an art journal book cover incorporating our own artwork.  Catt is the originator of something called "Cosmic Smash" books.  Her journals are lovely, but I chose to take my own road.

I created a cover using card stock, added copies of my drawings; sanded, gessoed and painted a dollar story children's book and viola - a simple art journal!
