happy places


what is it about finishing a journal that makes you feel like you've just conquered the world?!
i put the last few touches on the back cover of my "elvie journal",  and i'm happy all over
with a super feeling of accomplishment (even if it did take me almost a year! :)))!






             

here's a little cover-to-cover peek inside!
(you can watch it in larger format here!)


thanks for sharing this little art adventure with me! 
i hope you find yourself in lots of happy places this weekend!

{materials for the back cover:  elvie journal, derwent inktense pencils, koi watercolor, 
pitt artist pens, uniball signo white pen,  and a 4B pencil}

I finished my first journal and have started on my second now, although not hand drawn like yours. Maybe one day..........
