Art Journal Completion

I began this art journal ~ my very first ~ when I took an online class from Tammy Garcia last summer.  And I just completed it in full.

You've seen many spreads from this journal over the last months.  Here are some final finished pages.  The book is covered with magazine photos, deco Duck tape and titles printed on paper and fabric.  Inside the covers there are more magazine photos, washi tape and some drawn circles.

I treated the last page spreads just like pages in my big offprint journal, covering them with paint off the brayer, stamps, etc.  Many pages were then collaged, and some pages were left as is.

That is a.m.a.z.i.n.g.
and I admire your tenacity for finishing!
[as I gaze around at all my unfinished projects]
So, this is a journal of collages? Meaning, do you also write inside...?

That certainly is one heck of a project and you did such a great job at it. I don't know if I would have the tenacity to finish it, but I have often thought of doing it. I think I would need a helping hand. xox

Pure amazingness! I am THRILLED to see such gorgeous pages tucked inside your altered book. I love, love, love to page through the book I'm altering, to see the book bursting with color and texture, and so I imagine it is the same feeling of accomplishment. Well done!
