I've started a new journal! OK, don't laugh. I know, another one. The big news will be when I actually FINISH a journal.
This one is going to be full of calligraphy. It is almost 9" x 12" and was inspired by Martha Lever's "BIG" journal.
I wasn't able to buy locally the journal that she uses, so I bought a Fabriano pad of nice smooth paper which is squared with dots. This will help the writing stay straight. Unfortunately, the paper doesn't stay attached to the pad very well, and I could end up rebinding it with my Bind-It-All. The paper is too thin for water-based media, but I'll have a chance to use pan pastels and stamps that I haven't used for awhile.
It takes awhile to fill up a page!
