8 x 10 Hard Cover Painted Journal

A painted art journal made from paper glued over canvas boards. The spine is 3 pieces glued together in a sandwich (a piece of the cover paper and a piece of the end paper with a piece of tyvek envelope sandwiched in between). The spine is glued to the cover boards and then the signatures (3) are sewn into the spine in a 3 hole pamphlet stitch through pre-punched holes with 1/8" ribbon. I used an assortment of papers in the journal including painted papers (the majority of my painted papers are recycled – either newspaper or printouts or junk mail or envelopes etc.), 'found' papers from old books, maps, calenders, envelopes, etc
