It was a recreation of a class I took to learn how to add the lighting effect in this magical fairy-like forest. After putting this together, I had decided to make it into a trifold and fell in love with this look and feel. I showed it to a friend and she bought it like instantly!
It is painted on 300 gsm/140 LB Acid Free cold press 25% cotton watercolor paper. After it was painted I sealed it with Fine Art Fixatif, then did all the stitching. Once completely finished, I sealed it again with 2 coats of Krylon Crystal Clear sealer. I then added a layer of canvas fabric on the back and stitched up the edges with my sewing machine. I used the scrap pieces of canvas fibers and stitched those up on my sewing machine to make the strap. I then stitched in the signatures which are replaceable if you choose.
I plan to make quick and easy video to show you how to swap out the signatures.
NOTE – Although its been sealed well, I would not consider this waterproof by any means. I consider it a piece of art, so be gentle but dont be afraid to use it!
I was not able to photograph this journal in detail as I sold it before I could. I did take a scan of the original painting before I embellished it, so this is what you get to see…its still quite yummy I will admit!!!
