Jump Start Journaling

I have been wanting to start a daily visual journal for a while now but have not seemed to be able to find the time. To remedy this, I am about to begin several group projects/workshops, all of which I will be posting about soon. In the mean time, I thought my recent vacation would be a good time to jump start my journaling. So, one part of my travel journal is my first official visual journal, documenting my experiences in New Mexico in a nonrepresentational fashion. I handbound sheets of cold-press watercolor paper, covering each spread with different color acrylic washes. I plan to attach the pages to an altered book cover when complete. The book is approximately 4 1/4" x 6". Below are images of 4 pages/2 spreads. Click to enlarge.
