My goal this year is to actually complete some art journals and not start new ones until I get at least 4 completed. I was aiming to get one done each quarter and this is my 2nd one this year ( the first one is here )so I’m a little ahead of if the game.
I’ve posted a few of the individual pages on the paper craft-a-long thread.
This book was a 1970s modular crochet clothing pattern book. It really had some ugly patterns in it! I really liked the fabric covered cover but I’m so messy I got paint all over it. I cut out about half the pages and then glued the taming pages together by 2. I started this book maybe 7-8 years ago when I really had no idea what I was doing. My goal this year with this book was to cover and work over some of the worst pages. I left a few of the original journal pages o did just so I could see the change in my style over the years.
Here are some of the pics. They aren’t all great but I think it’s important to know that art journaling isn’t about being perfect. It’s about having fun and creating.
And just for example here are a few of the original pages I did.
