Altered Book Journal

Well I am still working away with the Jeanne Oliver Creative Workshop projects. Currently, I am working on an altered book journal. I have made these in the past and realized that I have always made them for someone else. As with some projects I was struggling for inspiration and the process was not flowing, I kept painting over certain parts, tearing other parts off and starting over, and then I walked away for a little while.

Thankfully, I have a wonderful muse and it happens to be my husband. He was my muse before we were married too. With his help, I figured out that I needed a purpose other than the workshop to create this journal.  After talking to my muse and watching some inspirational videos from other artists, I decided to make the book for myself.

It will be the place where I write down ideas, questions, wishes, etc. A place other than Evernote where I can store ideas and read through them again. Today has been very productive now that I have a purpose. I am hoping the altered book journal will be done tomorrow so I can post a picture.
