An Octopus's Garden

I finally found one of the finishing touches for the armature on top of this book. A little metal Octopus to go behind the magnifying glass.
I have to admit I am really pleased with this variation of the Zentangle, I like the idea of combining it with journaling. A few more pages to finish up and this journal will be filled to capacity. I still have far too many ideas that just aren't going to fit in here. I suppose I will have to come up with a second volume.

Beautiful work, Ingrid!
Ingrid, would you mind please to tell me what size / brand your 3 ring binder is. It doesn't look like typical 8 1/2 x 11". I m looking for a binder for my (hundreds of) pages of journaling, and my sheets are approx 6"x 9".
Thank you, Ingrid!

Kari - I start with a standard size chip board binder ... I cut a few inches off the width so it doesn't look like a typical loose leaf binder.

Thanks so much, Ingrid! my quest continues...!
You are inspiring so many!!
blissings, kari
