Art journal


After being inspired by The Art Journal Workshop, I started work on the inside pages
I found the book that I disassembled for the covers at a thrift store quite a while ago. When I got it I hadn't realized that all the pages were glossy which doesn't work very well for altering.  
I still loved the covers and knew I'd use them 
in some way.

The inside pages are recycled cardboard from cereal type boxes. I obsessively save them to use as substrate for so many different projects. The pages are all a uniform height but the width is very random. I felt this might give the journal an interesting look.



So far, I've slathered leftover paint from other projects on a few pages and completed one from scraps on my table. 







The journalling reads: 
Forget the darkness behind you. 
Turn your face towards the sun and bloom.

Cool book! I really like the cover! Did you use distress inks on it or was it already that color?

a great page, and those covers are cool! this will turn out terrific, I am sure. The cardboard pages are a nice change from paper...they hold up to a lot of stuff!

I never seem to have cardboard for pages, but I always appreciate when others recycle it. Those pages are going to be spectacular.
