Hand made ART journal * & I'm back :)

I haven't wrote on this blog in such a long time. Over a year in fact !! I thought it was about time that I started again :) So here I am with my 1st of many posts to come. I really wanted to get back in to art journalling. But the price of art journals these days is crazy :{ So I decided to make my own from 3 a4 sketch pads, some acrylic paint, stencils, stamps and stickers. I took apart the sketch pads and divided the paper into 4 piles and cut down to 8x8 inches. I also added some card scraps into each pile. I then book bound all 4 sections together. I kept hold of the covers from the sketch pads and glued all 3 covers together and used this for the cover of the art journal. And attached the cover to the pages the same way I bound all 4 sections together. I then just splashed on some paint :) used a few stencils with the acrylic paints. And stamped a few flower images onto the cover. Added a few stickers and silver beads to the butterfly. Thank you for reading this post and I hope you enjoy the pictures. :) Have a great day...
