Hello Muses! I’m starting my #2016ArtJourney with a bang! I’m absolutely stoked at the year-long class the awesome hubster got me for Christmas. I’m participating in Wanderlust 2016. It’s going to be a fun mess, I’m sure!
Part of the class entails keeping an art journal interpreting different prompts that are given through the course. Since I couldn’t find a smallish journal that I absolutely had to have, I decided to make my own and I love how it turned out.
Just look at it!! That is an upcycled book cover. And the imagery is perfect because art can be a rather religious journey right? Don’t hate. You know you love it!
Even the inside cover is awesome! Because all arty roads lead to Rome! (and maybe some to Jerusalem) ::snort::
I wanted to include some cool patterned papers inside. I like a good challenging spread. ::giggity:: I did make sure to keep them neutral so that my color choices aren’t completely limited.
You see some non-neutral pages in there? Those would be the B sides to the two pagers. Why not have some fun with colors and patterns right?
The size of my book is 5.5″x8.5″. I did have to cut those lovely 12×12’s down to size. Now what do you suppose I did with the scraps?
Be sure to take a look here throughout the year as I’ll be posting my journal spreads as I complete them. Also, use #2016ArtJourney and share with the world what you are creating this year.
