Documented Life Project -week 2

This week's prompt was to use Gesso, and the quote from Mary Shelley-"The beginning is always today". Here is my interpretation:

I used Gesso as a base and used several different stencils with spray inks for the background. Some gesso snuck into the background as well. Stabilo pencil to outline the girl. Pitt brush pen for the writting. I covered it with a matte varnish prior to doing the writting.

I also just finished my cover. It makes it feel more like a book with the cover done.

I'm using a handmade journal out of Fabriano hot press watercolor paper. I had made it for another class and my daughter was going to use this one but never did, so she graciously gave it back to me. Duct tape covers the binding edge.
