Mini Journal

This little 3.5 x 2.5 inch Mixed Media Art Journal  was inspired by a competition to honour "The Black Angus" at this year's Royal Melbourne Show.

The cover has been made with brown paper, glue, embossing folder and oil pastels to create a Faux Leather look.

Inside the covers is a short history of the cattle in question.  Some things I have used: water colour and acrylic paints, oil pastels, embossing paste, stamps , collage, different papers, some hand drawing, white gel pens and black markers.  The Black Angus is a large rubber stamps, so I stamped the image a few times, scanned it to my computer and then shrunk it to the sizes I needed, printed, cut and coloured with copic pens.

After delivering the journal last week for judging, I received an email last night advising I had placed 2nd.  I am over the moon.
