Recycled Greeting Card Journal
I found the coolest tutorial from Jennibellie here, on YouTube, and I just had to do it. She makes the most awesome journals for art journaling. I love this!
I used some page kits I bought from DCWV, called "A Colorful Life". I thought it was super appropriate for this project.
The binding can either be beaded or not, and I decided to raid my stash and use up A BUNCH of my funky cool beads.
I layered some images from the paper line on the cover, and added some of the epoxy stickers to it.
Some of the cards make pages, and some create pockets. She shows some of her pages painted, some covered with paint. I chose to make them all covered with this delicious paper.
In the pockets she puts mini journals. She did tutorials on several different ways to make a mini journal. I did paint the pages for this one. I totally just experimented. These turned out cool. These are also made out of greeting cards.
Some of the pages.
I need to make the rest of the mini journals to go in the pockets, but you get the idea. I love how this turned out. My first thought is to put my favorite quotes into this journal. Your thoughts?
