31 Art Journals No: 16


Welcome to today's Art Journal as part of the 31 Art Journal Series.  I really like this journal and the idea of making it from a recycled children's book.  You can get some lovely designs that they just don't seem to make when you get to a certain age. 

This book was made as part of a course I did on Willowing Check out some of her courses, and when you sign up for her newsletter you get access to here free 4 week course


This Mini Art Journal was all about us, our friendships, and more.  We had to include an image of ourselves when we were small and write out encouraging words.  What would you liked to have said to your 5 year old self?  What encouragement would you give, what would you have liked to have known.




What would you say about your friendships, we did a whimsical page of and example of our friendships.  Its funny when you think you usually have a small core of people that you really connect with, as opposed to the hundreds/thousands of friends you may have on Facebook


Take a look at the video and see what else I put in the Art Journal, let me know what you think.

Tomorrow I will be doing a recap and sharing some tips for your Art Journal, and on Sunday I will be sharing a video with you to get your creative juices flowing.

31 Art Journals - No: 15 -


Today's Art Journal sees us half way through the 31 Art Journal Series, and I have double news to tell you today!

This Art Journal has been made entirely out of recycled materials, from envelopes, magazines, cereal box and was something I wanted to create to experiment with what I had to hand.



I also used it as a way to practice particular techniques, like the one below layering foil with foam letters beneath to create a message.  This page is still to be completed.


Check out the video of the Art Journal below to get a better look

31 Art Journals No: 14


Welcome to today's Art Journal which I call my Healing Journal and is part of the 31 Art Journals Series.

This as with all my Art Journals are always fun to create, and each one has its own purpose as a journal.  For this one I wanted a fabric and paper journal.  The signatures inside are paper, and contain a mixed size which then impacts on the message on each page


The front page has modeling past over a stencil and it gives a great texture once it was all painted.  I put a tassel border on the edge of the journal and I really like the way the journal feels in my hands.


This Art Journal is about sharing truths and being clear about what is important.  When you write these things down it helps to reinforce the message.


Some pages are waiting for their final message, or layer and that is the great thing that you can still dip into the art journal and say what is on your mind.

Stay blessed and be a blessing!

31 Art Journals No: 13 - Cereal Bag Journal


Welcome to Art Journal No 13, which is part of the 31 Art Journal Series.  This Art Journal started off as an experiment, but I really enjoyed putting it together and the final result that was achieved.  If you don't experiment then you don't know how things can work together and in some of those accidents amazing results were achieved.


You can see the inspiration for the journal HERE.  I started out with a collection of images, background papers, embellishments that were going to be added in between the cereal bag and heated to seal them in.



When you know what you want to put in between the layers which is a different way of working as you are creating the journal pretty much in one sitting before sealing, so the though processes are slightly different.


I had a lot of vintage images and small postcard samples and I wanted to give the feel of  a vintage journal.  I added embellishments, stitching on some pages and created some tags.


I really enjoyed how this one turned out, and I would in the next one include more stitching as after time and use some of the embellishments come loose.
