Mixed media art journal

I'm loving this Strathmore art journal, particularly the 5 1/2 x 8 size which is just right for me. I am planning to start a larger size journal in January for a monthly calendar journal page, but generally I like this smaller size.

More art journal pages here and here!

Art Journal Pages

A few recent art journal pages from my 5 1/2 x 8 inch mixed media notebook. I really like this small size, but the spiral binding does get in the way a bit when I want to to double page spreads.

Stash swappers

I recently participated in a stash swap with the Altered Book Swap Group.  These 2 pretty little gals are images sent to me by my swap partner Karen.  They found a lovely home in my art journal!

Thank you Karen for sharing!!

Simple Pamphlet Stitch books

I made a few simple one and 2 signature books with sketch paper sewn into a few different covers, with waxed thread.

I like the look of the floral scrapbook paper covers, but I don't think they are the most sturdy covers. The orange wallpaper sample cover is definitely more durable.

The little notebook is stapled rather than sewn.
