Journal pages

I made an accordion fold journal for a recent trip to Maine. I used my favorite Fabriano watercolor paper. You can make these books any shape or size and if you make a dedicated journal for a particular trip or occasion you are more apt to fill it up or suffer the "empty" page syndrome. Found the little crab on the beach and put him on a rock in the sun (he was unfortunately already swimming the big ocean in the sky) and captured the strong shadows beneath him.
