My friend, Joy, decorates the covers of all her sketchbooks, journals, notebooks, etc. Everywhere you look in her shop/studio are beautiful collaged, painted, and altered book covers. I just love that. So I decided to decorate some for myself. Here's my first - a collaged and painted 9" X 12" spiral bound sketchbook done in a garden theme (since it is that time of year!). This is the front.
