(¸.•´ (¸.•´This listing is for one Canvas Art Journal. It is ready to ship!

The Starving Artist: • • • Looking for the perfect affordable journal for your art? This may be it! This white, primed canvas journal is just waiting for your to make it yours!

journal measures: 6.5" x 9" (when closed)
This journal has larger dimensions and almost twice the number of pages than are in the small Starving Artist Journal
paper: 70lb acid free artists sketch paper with a medium tooth
pages: 144 (count front/back)

THE COVER: is heavy artist grade canvas that has been primed with 3 coats of gesso. The cover will hold up to just about any embellishment you choose to give it. The inside cover is lined with charcoal gray or black, soft, recycled, acrylic felt.

THE PAPER: will take light washes, pens, pencils, acrylic and pastels.***(see below) The pages are sewn into the spine with waxed linen thread. The pages are not enclosed (except for the spine) so that your art and objects may play off the pages. There is no wrap closure to get into your way and inhibit your art. The pages open flat for ease of use.

APPLICATIONS: Use your art to decorate it inside and out. It is truly a blank slate. Individualize the outside using gel medium,* paint it with acrylics or oils, *attach 3-D objects with heavy acrylic gel medium, *tie beads to the spine, *doodle all over the cover with sharpie pens (seal with spray fixative); the possibilities are endless!

*** If you are going to use very wet (soggy) mediums (water color, spriz', sprays, drips and the like) I recommend that you first prep your page with a coat of Gesso (available in clear, black and white) or order a custom journal with watercolor paper or mixed media paper which will hold up to the soggy mediums better. See this video on how to prep your pages http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIaz_UT_1xA&t=1m35s

CUSTOM orders: Available! Convo me ;-)
