Tracey's homemade art journal

This journal is one I made myself out of 9 X 12" canvas paper... I used a hole punch & put big clip rings on it, and made a cover out of cardboard. Not fancy, but I've enjoyed it a lot. Mostly I use acrylics in it, with bits of collage paper & pencil crayons & random pens. I use my journal as a place to play & dream, & try stuff out when I'm not feeling patient enough for "serious" art.
The cover:

Re: Tracey's homemade art journal

I love your journal, and this type in general. ("art journal" to me is this type. Regular drawing/painting ones I just call sketchbooks.) Canvas paper! That's an idea I had not heard before. Do you like it a lot better than paper for creative journaling?
