Monday Journal – Book Art Journal

It has been quite a while since I have gotten to do some art but I thought it was time for a Monday Journal.  Time to pull out my book art journal that I made by recycling an old book and covering it with a piece of leather.

I loved this paper (which is where I got the idea to use red on the cover) and used it for the inside front and back covers.

I didn’t want to cover the old school illustrations entirely so just used a vintage plastic table cloth as a stencil over top.

I always collect paint chips when I am at the hardware store so used one of them to make my title with my hand carved “Art” stamp.

I added a few stencils and had some old house stickers laying around I thought it was about time I used them.  The “Love” washi tape I found at Ikea of all places.

The finger stickers I found at Ikea as well.  They had this whole paper section that had tons of great stuff in it.

Hopefully now the art making will continue.  Sometimes you just need to get something down to get the juices flowing!!

 I’ll have some news later this week about up coming classes so stay tuned!!
