Journaling along with Sarah, the beginning.

A few days ago I wrote a short post about an on line journaling blog by Sarah Whitmire.  I have been reading her entries over the past few weeks and decided to jump right in and try it out. 
Instead of buying a new journal, I decided to reuse a journal that I made a few months back that I made from canvas panels and five handsewn signatures made from Fabriano Watercolor paper.  I am covering up the work that I started in the journal, I feel stuck with it and I don’t like it.

Here is the blank white canvas panel that are the covers, and one of the pages that I will cover up to make this new journal.

Here is the first page covered up with old dictionary pages to create a new surface to work on.First page covered up
I am going to leave the canvas panel as is until I decide on an overall theme or color for the journal.
Here is the second set of pages, also covered up with old dictionary pages.

Once these have dried, I will continue on with the first tutorial
Stay tuned for more.
