I am keeping my options open at this stage, as regards the canvas itself. I did think I might paint it black or dark brown, then I thought it might look better I left it white and added a frame at the end of the project...but I decided I can think more about the appearance of the canvas as the year progresses.
Covering the canvas with paper also crossed my mind, but I don't want a busy background to detract from the inchies.
I adhered week one, "Rabbit", onto the canvas with a large Zot. This which will hold the inchie securely but will also allow me to remove it without damage if I decide to change things around.
The cover on this travellers notebook sized journal is made from calico and fun foam...check it out below or on YT...
