Journal for New Book

Right now I’m working on a new book for Abrams/STC Craft and it’s been slow-going. I’ve been painting some backgrounds on pieces of Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper, the paper I LOVE to work on, but something feels a little off. Recently I made a large journal with Fabriano to work in, tearing up 22 X 30 in. sheets into 3 pieces so the pages would end up 11 in. x 10. And today I started playing in it and realized I felt really comfortable painting in it, so I decided to use the backgrounds I create in it for my book.

It works so I’m going with it!
