Handmade Mini Journals
Ready to write down your New Year’s resolutions? I wasn’t sure I was and then I started to play with making mini journals. These 3 experimental minis in progress, are made from tags, paper bags, envelopes and watercolor paper. Unlike the bigger store bought, bound journals, these minis can be completed in a few days or a few weeks.I’ve added some collage, recycled papers and Washi tape, but mostly I am trying to grow my skills in mark making, line drawing and explore different paint and marker techniques.
In this little trio, I feel one might be for New Year’s resolutions (I have one resolution written and hidden on a tag in the paper bag:), another mini I think will be to experiment with art journal techniques, especially hand lettering and paint/ink backgrounds and the last one will be for poems or inspirational quotes. Maybe—-possibly—-perhaps:) my mini journals will help me keep my New Year’s art and writing resolutions on track!
Happy New Year and making, Jill
