I went to college for graphic design. Along the way I was able to take some really fun art classes. One of those being a Junk Journal course. One day we talked about making our own journals, so I gave it a try.
My first round of journals were cloth covered. Then as hobbies do, it morphed into paper covered coptic sketchbooks.
I am still making coptic journals, but my cover of choice these days is acrylic pours. It took me quite a while (and a lot of help) to land on a technique that seems to work. Making these covers is an ever evolving process and I love it.
