I love the variety of ways that a travelers journal can be utilized, list making, drawing,art journaling and all in a cool and practical package. This version is made from a piece of primed painters canvas that we will be painting in the morning using mixed media techniques, stenciling, stamping and free-hand painting. Additionally we will be painting on heavy paper to create covers and papers for the single signatures note books that will fit into the journal. Additionally there are pockets and and elastic binding to be able to use to refill your Midori style journal with notebooks as you use them up.
I will bringing lots of stencils, stamps, and mark-making tools to play with but if you have your favorites you can bring those to use.
