Canvas Journal


Here is the red shed out back and where I spray paint and do also sorts of fume-y and messy things. I do wear my mask and I even try to hold my breath.
Here is a journal I made with some sprayed canvas. After I sprayed I took it inside and embellished more with lettering etc.
Here is the back.

I have Fabriano Medioevalis folded note cards inside but I haven't sewn them in because I like this journal but I don't absolutely love it so I don't want to use the fancy- schmancy paper in it. I might just make it a Remains of the Day type journal.

The red shed of creativity it is for sure.

You have taken the Remains of the Day class and made it your own. Taking what you love and incorporating it into projects is terrific.

I love that you share your creations with us all.

Oh I think your journal turned out great! What a good place to do all that spraying and not around your house!

Beautiful canvas journal and what a fabulous spot to do your spray painting and such...i never thought of hanging it up, always seems to be a floor newspaper thing...interesting!

I love seeing your little red shed Martha, and your journal is terrific! I think it's fancy shmancy paper worthy. :) Thanks for the blog scheduling tip. I've tried that a number of times, but it doesn't post at the time I've scheduled. (maybe my Mac is running on Hawaii time!)
