Included with the book Creative Wildfire: An Introduction to Art Journaling -- Basics and Beyond is a blank journal which has a cover made from the inside pages of Creative Wildfire. I wanted to further personalize my blank journal, and with Valentines Day fast approaching, my current theme is "hearts." Well, what is more ironic than to make a heart out of gun images?
I also happened to make an ATC while I was at it. Just a bit of ironic creativity to share with you.
