Mini Binder Art Journal Update

Mini Binder Art Journal Update

I’m a week in with my Mini Binder Art Journal and I have art journal pages to show you.

I’m loving the freedom of this art journal and it’s really inspiring my creativity.  I love that I can add in little things that just delight me like postcards or Project Life cards that I love anywhere I like.

I shared my intentions and an introduction into my Mini Binder Art Journal here.

Here’s a video flip through of my pages so far:

(if you prefer to just look at the photos of my pages, see below)

Mini Binder Art Journal Page 1

  • Background is scrapbook paper
  • Map paper
  • Butterflies cut from scrapbook paper and fabric
  • A piece of a postcard.  The previous owner of the postcard wrote, “Where they go courting.”

  1. Postcard with a quote written on the back.  “Look deep into nature and you’ll understand everything better.”  – Albert Einstein
  2. The title page taken from an old (beat up) copy of The Velveteen Rabbit that I did a collage on.
  3. Back page from the title page.  The illustration is from the book, but I added the colorful fabric butterflies.

(Note:  I have a few copies of The Velveteen Rabbit.  It’s one of my favorite books.  I’ve collected them from flea markets so I can use them in my art journals.  I also have one pristine copy I don’t touch.)

The next page is rainbow stripes of watercolors.

The next page has a watercolor background with a collage of paper strips.

I also added in a section for quotes and ideas that I can jot down and have in one place as they come to me.  Creativity begets more creativity, so I just wanted to be able to capture ideas as I’m working in my art journal.
