Here's my finished wood journal from my art play-day with friends the other day. It took a completely different direction as I got the doodle bug, and couldn't stop myself! I first drilled holes around the opening and then colored it using my Color Mists . Once it was dry I used a white sailor pen and began drawing designs. I used some cotton dyed needlepoint thread and a piece of wire to stitch through the holes I'd drilled to create a pattern.
On the back side I used the Color Mists also and then used a stencil and chalk inks around the edges. I also went over the stencil design with the white sailor pen again.
