New Art Journals

The year's almost ending, and since I've managed to fill up my A6 journal and mini journal--most of the latter during Inktober--I made new art journals for the new year. Until recently, I used to enjoy my arty sessions on loose sheets, which I'd bind into a journal when I'd used up a fair number… Continue reading New Art Journals

New Art Journals

I punched holes in the covers after adding the plastic wrap, and used the covers as templates to mark the corresponding… Continue reading Art Journals Old n New

100 Days | Bookbinding

I've finally wrapped up my 100 days of art sessions. Literally - by binding all the art journal pages into a book! I mentioned last time that I hadn't thought of the covers earlier, so I got an extra session from making the covers for the book. I used a single sheet to make both… Continue reading 100 Days | Bookbinding
