My new FAVORITE Art Journal

I'm a BIG fan of Gulfsprite's Art on Youtube and saw this video on turning a hard cover book into an Art Journal- Video
I am oddly particular about the size journal and the texture of the paper I like to work with. And this idea was PERFECT for me! Older books have a rougher surface to the paper and are more absorbent. Some books have a slicker surface on the paper and don't really need to be gessoed. It also solves the problem of a blank page staring at you :)
 This book is fabric so I just did some splattered acrylic paint and duck tape on the binding.
