Very nice job for a first time! You must be a good teacher! This is my first visit to your blog and I have really enjoyed browsing around. I do altered books and am just starting some art journaling. I am definitely an amateur, but have learned just from reading your blog. Do you have a tutorial or anything on how you make your hand-painted background pages? They are lovely. I would love to learn how to do that. Well done and thanks for sharing on your blog.
