Just call me a book artist!

I've been able to work in my studio the last few days and got inspired to create this little watercolor journal with a bit of a Recycled Circles demo. Of course, I spend 1/2 day creating it, but I think it's pretty darn cute.

The back cover is also my artwork. (Printed by Spoonflower.) Oh, and you'll notice there's washi tape on it too!

And a little charm on the spine!

In my JaneVille Etsy shop now: This is a precious little hand made journal measuring 6x6 inches. It's one of a kind artwork on the front. There are 11 pages (that's counting front and back) of high quality Arches 140 lb hot press watercolor paper. This would make a perfect gift for a special trip or guest book.
