A little Art Journal

I recently discovered the work of France Papillon who does the most amazing journal pages.  This is the result of a little online course I followed. It is four sheets of A4 watercolour paper, the backgrounds were done first then the pages folded and sewn together using a simple pamphlet technique.  I then continued to work into them.
