I have to locate the perfect journal or make one. Since I am staying put this year I decided to take one of each. After much research on the web, I decided to try the Stillma and Birn mixed media ...Delta series. I got it in the mail today and everything about it is perfect. As I type, it has a coat of gesso drying on the cover awaiting its painting of the hillside town of Terni, Italy.....my destination. Behind Miss Stillman B is the beginning cover of my handmade version. The pages for this version are Venetian covered linen sitting in a stack waiting to be sewn into their new home. Finished versions will be upcoming.
