This is the first spread in the chunky book. The word courage is my chosen word for the year, and I just happened to have a piece of vellum with that word so I used it for the inside of the cover.
The Four Words (Create a Better World) is based on a prompt from the Art Journal Caravan. You can learn more about the Four Word Expression and the book by Patti Digh here: Patti Digh 37 Days.
I added a bit of gold paint to this. For some reason it shows odd on the photos. I didnt add much, yet in some places it looks like did and in other places it doesn't show at all. Also the book itself shows darker than it really is.
