Visual Journals

 I love the look and feel of the hand painted artist's canvas over heavy book board and have made a few more of these books to put in my Etsy Shop.   
While I often use recycled leather for my spines, for this series I have been using hand painted canvas and it works beautifully.   
I begin with large sheets of artist's canvas, painting and embellishing the entire surface.  When it's dry, it is cut into pieces just right for covering the book boards and spines.  
Once the canvas is adhered to the book board, I paint it a little more so each book is unique.
The paper is cut and folded into signatures, then bound to the spine.
This one is ready to go!
