After being inspired by The Art Journal Workshop, I started work on the inside pages.
I found the book that I disassembled for the covers at a thrift store quite a while ago. When I got it I hadn't realized that all the pages were glossy which doesn't work very well for altering.
I still loved the covers and knew I'd use them
in some way.
The inside pages are recycled cardboard from cereal type boxes. I obsessively save them to use as substrate for so many different projects. The pages are all a uniform height but the width is very random. I felt this might give the journal an interesting look.
So far, I've slathered leftover paint from other projects on a few pages and completed one from scraps on my table.
The journalling reads:
Forget the darkness behind you.
Turn your face towards the sun and bloom.
