Book Cover and a little Music

I spent part of the day yesterday creating a cover for my new art journal. I used alcohol inks to color the washers. You should have seen the look the clerk at the hardware store gave me when I told him what I needed the washers for. He must have blinked about ten times and then said "A book??" Anyway, I used a square punch to get the little colored back grounds behind them and then glued them down. The swirl stamp is by Rhonna Ferrar, which I colored in with gel pens.

In other news, I finally figured out how to embed a music player in my blog. It's set up so that you have to click on it to get it to play. I'm planning on changing my music selection about once a month--so have a listen!

I love the washers! I have some alcohol inks that are still in their package ... need to break them out LOL! What kind of journal is that? Did you make the whole thing yourself? Looks like a neat size.
