2011 mini art journal pages

Some of these I have posted camera phone pics of as I did them but I am putting better quality scans of all of the art journal pages up so bare with me.

Art Journal Every Day… Days 6 and 7

Yesterday was Goth coffee and i did some very basic pages while visiting with friends and this morning I spent a couple hours taking apart a LUCKY and a huge VANITY FAIR magazine and sorting the pictures into my filing box (a large hanging file box with about 20 files, I need more hanging files to sort better)

Here are yesterdays art journal mini pages, I plan on doing my weekly 8×8 in journal page this weekend, with some collage stuff

Day 5 of Art Journal Every Day – Lots done

We had craft night tonight at a local coffee shop and I had 3 hours to journal and visit with friends.

Part of what I did was cut out a couple dozen silver velum butterflies that say Believe in different fonts all over them, the velum takes a great tint when you use gel pens and smear it on it, I am putting on on each page of my new 2011 mini journal since Believe is my word for the year.

I then finished two single pages of the 4×6 journal

and started the background for a two page spread, using colors outside of my comfort zone

Finally I helped set up a very basic Art Journal kit for a friend just to get him going

Art Journal Every Day Jan 1-4

I am working in my mini 4x6in spiral bound journal for at least 10 minutes a day everyday and still trying to get one page done in my 8x8in loose leaf journal each week (still need to scan those pages I have done)

I am not use to working so small or in a spiral notebook so it is taking a bit of learning to free myself up, also I am having to learn what I can and can’t do with this paper, it does not like watercolor directly on the pages but I can do it separately and glue a background in, which is what I think will be happening most with this book.

Here is the pages I have done in the 2011 mini art journal from Jan 1 to Jan 4

My Word for 2011

I have done a few simple pages in my mini 4x6in journal which I carry with me the most lately, nothing to complex yet since I can carrying it round in public and still finding out how much I can do in the smaller set up.

I will post pics of the pages soon

New mini Journal for 2011

I just bought an 80 sheet (160 page)  4×6 in hard bound wirebound journal, and I am gluing pages together for more strength right now and then I will start decorating the covers, outside and inside
