This Blog post is from my old website before I switched to self-hosting. It was published on February 14, 2018
Today I am very excited because not only did I finish my diary (you can see a flip through if it here) recently, but also finished my art journal a couple of days later. Just like I did with my diary, I want to show you the set up for my new journal before I show you every single page in my currently finished journal. So be prepared because there will be an art journal flip through up on Sunday.
But now let’s get into my new set up:
This is my new art journal. It is smaller than my old one and, just like my diary, was handmade by myself. I replaced the old pages of this book with new paper and turned it into a notebook. If you are interested there still are a bunch of handmade journals available in my Etsy Shop. I love the new size and I am having so much fun experimenting with it. I had this notebook for years and never really knew how to use it. Now I finally found one.
For the first page, all I did was stamp the word “art journal” in the middle. I love this minimalistic opener because I am always intimidated by the first page. This way there was no pressure but to find the middle of the page.
Next, I included some rules just like in my art journal. I have no problem with people looking through my art journal as long as they follow my rules. I changed the rules a little bit this time but the essence of them is still the same.
For the last page in my new set up, I included my contact information. Luckily I never lost any of my old journals but I wanted to make sure that just in case I lost it my journal would find it’s way back to me. Fingers crossed I will never lose it.
This is it for my art journal set up. I am super excited about working in it and can’t wait to share my pieces with you. Stay tuned for the art journal flip through on Sunday.
Do you have any specific art journal set up?
Lots of Love
