New Journal

Just finished this journal filled with
60 pages of 140lb. watercolor paper.
Added some of my paper beads for decoration.
The cover is Lokta paper, sometimes called
Nepali paper which comes from the Lokta bush
or the Daphne bush. The binding is a rayon
book cloth for added strength. Measures 
9 1/2 by 6 1/2. I've used these for
watercolor and for photo albums.
I thought the pattern was a fun choice.

Sharon, I love this journal you created! I really like the paper you chose to fill it with. So often the pages in journals are not to painted, drawn on. Nice job.
