Awe, the "Hunting and Gathering" stage of a new project .... my favorite part of a new Journal (But then again, I say that at every stage of a Journal). This is actually a journal I have been planning for months and months, but have spent time trying to tie up a bunch of loose ends. While I didn't get quite as far as I had hoped, I am just too excited about this book and just had to get a start on it. I still am gathering more imagery, but have enough to at least get a good start on this. It'll be a tunnel book, as you can see by it's meager beginnings and will have a very dark feel to it. I had initially planned it as a Halloween themed project minus the pumpkins and witches. What I have done differently this time (As compared to the Alice themed tunnel book) is to have all the imagery printed in black on buff colored paper. I love this look and that gives the option of leaving it basically a Black and White (Or actually buff colored) or the imagery can be colored in with water color pencils, which gives a very soft and haunting look to it. I can't decide which way I want to do this journal yet, but I'll probably end up doing a bit of both.
This journal has wooden covers, will probably have an acetate page (not pictured), box board pages and will have a metal ring binding. The overall size is 8" X 8". More photos to follow as it progresses.
