If you have been following the Magical Journal Journeys this past year in 2013, then you are at the right place for our year end PARTY to view all NINE completed journals. If you have not been following the journals you don't need an invitation, I would  LOVE  for you to stay and  Join the party! It actually begins on Saturday, but if you are here early... LET THE PARTY BEGIN!

The journal below is my completed journal. I made the original journal and then it was sent off to the states and the UK and back to me at the end of the year. Each artist chose a dominant color(s) for their journals. This party is to show each completed journal in their chosen colors. Nine Art Journals, .. a collaboration of  9 artists and friends.

After viewing my journal, please click on the other 8 artists to see more amazing journals and how their colors came to life. At the end of this post, you are welcome to sign up for my give away for joining the party!

 RED is m favorite color. To compliment it, I chose PINK (my second favorite) and Orange

 I chose a Vintage book. The leather cover was so old it was separating from the hard board, so I covered the hard board and covered the outer leather cover with gauze that I painted RED. I stitched the gauze to the leather cover and cut ouT a window. Underneath the gauze I made a collage before stitching the cover on to the leather. On the hard board I made a collage similar to the one in the window. NEVER UNDER ESTIMATE IMPERFECTIONS, this breakdown of the book cover ended up giving me two covers in one!

 I had this old metal rusted button with a crown on that looked like it once was on an old heavy Pea Coat. I used that button on the cover which was a perfect holder for a paint brush.


I added color tags to show the colors of my journal

You can see how my book just kept getting 

 Here is the REVEAL of my completed Journal and the Shared Pages of our MAGICAL JOURNAL JOURNEYS For 2013.
