I've signed up for another Round Robin Journal Swap on Kindred Souls Art Group. This one is called World of Color, and each person is to choose two colors for their journals. All the pages for that journal are only two use those two colors. While working on my journal, I found this more difficult than I imagined. I choose Blue & Purple for my two colors.
For the covers of my journal, I started by applying white DAP (painters acrylic latex caulk) over corrugated cardboard, created a texture and let it dry overnight.
