I decided to go very much into fantasy. Something I know would never happen since its not real.

I like how this turned out except I messed up the writing in the square below the window. Created using Dylusion spray inks, cardstock, Sharpie Brush Markers, Uniball Signo White Gel Pen, Sakura Micron Pens and labels. The fez over the word madman is to represent the 11th Doctor.

Extra Separate Art Piece
I enjoyed creating graffiti so I decided to create a simple piece with Ruth’s Blog name. It isn’t in the journal as its a separate piece that she can frame and hang somewhere if she wants. It was created using Sharpie Brush Pens and Sakura Micron Pens.
Decided to do a printout of the prompts to place at the beginning of the journal. I used the image of a background I had created for something else to be the background for the prompts.
I decided I would wrap the journal and the art piece but instead of using store bought wrapping paper I decided to create my own using acrylic paint and thin kraft paper.
To create the back cover I used chipboard since its thicker then cardstock. I covered it in wrinkled tissue paper for texture using gel matte medium and painted it using latex and acrylic paint. I used label paper and rice paper to create some of the pieces. I also used masking tape, labels, stickersm acrylic paint pen and Sharpie Brush Pens.
I had a hard time finding a rock but eventually I found one. I actually used two rocks. Basically my pet rock has a pet rock. I gessoed both rocks and painted them using acrylic paint and Faber-Castell Brush Pens. For one of the rocks I used gears, pebbles, tubes and a few other items. I also created a little back story for my pet rocks which I included in the journal.
