I thought I'd share two more of the canvas portfolio journals I made in Roben-Marie Smith's online workshop Collage, Construct and Affirm. It's really a fun process and it's all based around a sheet of canvas with many layers added.
Here's the folded up journal:
And here it is from the back opened up:
Inside this one there's a pocket on the left with a velcro closure and a sewn in signature of pages of Bristol paper with wonderful inky drips (all Liquitex acrylic inks).
This is the back of the pocket as it's flipped out.
When you start your layers of canvas, you initially collage a bunch of papers onto it and I fell in love with the look of just that layer, so I also made a journal that way too.
The signature inside this one is made from heavyweight manila file folders cut to size. After all, if it's so much fun working on manila tags, it will have to be fun using this for my pages, right?
In the next day or so I'll have a post to share showing just how much fun it is to work on those manila pages!
