July has been an awesome month for me. I am taking part in a wonderful project called, The Circle Journal. Fifteen ladies are participating and we will be circulating our journals among each other.
For this I created a journal by altering an old book, did the cover page and two spreads inside.

 This is the front cover of the journal done using glimmer mist for the background and watercolor flowers

 On the inside of both the covers I made pockets using gelli print pattern papers.

 The first page in watercolors.I also added a tag with some art work and a photo of mine.

 This is my two page spread . I did this using both acrylics and watercolors.

 "All good things are wild and free." [Sorry, I don't remember the origin of this quote]

 My swans are not totally white, guess it's the light:) 

And the back cover
I finished it, posted it last week and yesterday received the message that it's now in the hands of another member. I'm hoping to see my book after around 10 months, filled with awesome creative work by 14 other members of this group. Isn't that like waiting for a big, yummy surprise to arrive at your doorstep after all those months?
Hope you enjoyed visiting my blog
