This page I created for a Facebook Mission Impossible group. The subject given by Mike Deakin was " Go Nuts". I decided to show different nuts, and for that I used two of my favorite artsy things in the world: watercolors and botanical drawing. Aside from watercolors I also used some stamps and black waterproof marker. That was it! I am very happy with the result! By the way, can you spot a nut that does not belong here? :-)

This art journal was a labour of love. It has seven (yes, seven!) signatures, they are sewn into a rounded spine: It is dedicated to one of the greatest criminal novelists Dorothy L.

And there is more than at first meets the eye. Dedicated to a criminal novel, this art journal has a secret of its own. What is the secret? All is revealed in the video!
