"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

New Journal


I have been wanting to try this idea for so long and I finally got enough time to do it. :)

The cover is made using my crayon paper. Both sides of the paper were covered in crayon. The inside pages are handmade papers. It measures 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 inches and is 1/2 inch thick. I think it would be perfect for altering by creating collages on the pages or painting or drawing on the pages. :) I am very happy with the results. It looks great!
