Painted Journals


This week was spent replenishing my Etsy shop with new hand-painted canvas journals. I had a great time making them not only because of the art but also because I had finally found a way to make the covers removeable and reuseable with other journals. The art on the canvases was created using some of my favorite techniques (spray and splash paint for the background), motifs (hamsa, lotus, mandala, Sanskrit texts etc.) and colors.


















Thanks for stopping by. Linked to Paint Party Friday. Many thanks to Kristen and Eva for hosting.

  5. Lovely book covers. I've made some as well and it's fun to make them and my journals feel more personal with my own covers.
