The cover base is a piece of mis-printed cardstock that I used as mop up during another project. I stenciled gold acrylic over it. It was pure happenstance when I realized the the filigree pattern in the stencil mirrored the iron work in the photograph.
This cover is "Frankenpaper", kind of a paper crazy quilt I made from a bunch of scraps someone had sent me in a swap. It's a bit wonky and I love it.
One of my favorite things to do in Paris is walk along the Seine.
I love these journals.
