I journal and create in bright colors, or It's dark and deep. There is no in between as far as colors. I can try all I want but it doesn't express me 100%.
This is my dark journal. Sometimes I want to create something macabre, play off of something from American Horror Story, or express and dark feeling with a disturbing picture. Either way, it doesn't find it's rightful place in my DLP or other journals.
The bias tape/thread "stitches" are glued down and rough textured on the cover. The skull is a copy of a drawing I have on my bulletin board I drew a couple of years ago.
I started this journal in a book from the thrift store that I picked up. It is a hard cover photography encyclopedia type book. I has nice partially glossy pages, tons of black and white and old photography to play off of and a hard cover that was easy to alter.
This many not be for everyone. (That is my warning here :) )
