Making journals

I have been involved in running workshops in a secondary school, see some details here, and decided to make some journals that the students could keep and record their art work in.

Decided to start by printing some ideas for covers for these journals and used my Venetian Windows print on brown paper for the first one:

Then I thought I could use my Florentine Lilies print for another cover and started printing out one of the designs:

Added the second print:

This is the first journal cover made along with the paper printed for the second journal:

Hi Alessandra
Thank you for your kind comment - the printing does seem to be turning out well!

Beautiful patterns, just like Indian silk shawls.

Thank you Valerie for your comment - I hadn't thought of them like that - someone else said they looked Japanese.
