The word of the year that I have chosen is creative. I wanna be more creative, using my craft supplies in more creative ways. And what better place to do that than an art journal. I have started a couple of journals in the past, made a layout or two and then stopped. I think it’s because they have been a little to big and also I didn’t have a clear idea where to go with it creatively.
This journal fits 3″ x 4″ pages, it’s disc bound so you can add as many or as few pages as you want. An added benefit is that you can add pages as you go or change the material of the pages anytime in your creative journey with the journal. The shape of the journal is not my original idea, I just modified it to fit my needs.
I did make two layouts while I was on it. And now all I want to do is to continue to work in it, so look forward to more videos in the future with more layouts. I also found a hole in my craft stash, I need more little sentiments that is more for journaling than greeting cards. I have so many ideas! To see all the layouts I have done so far you can find them HERE.
