Art Journals Going Big!

As I was rifling through my ephemera stash this week, I found lots of gorgeous pieces that I had forgotten completely about. Well, that was because I haven’t been able to use them in the smallish to tiny art journals I am currently working in.

Answer: Go Big…

This beauty was given to me by my mom a few months ago. I absolutely love the cover, but the images inside are all in sepia, no color! I know, unbelievable! It measures about 12″x 9″, a perfect size for 8 1/2″x 11″ paper.

Luckily, I have plenty of awesome large, vintage books to pick pages from, along with an abundance of super colorful painted pages I need to use up.

It’s a great place for all my Flow magazine gratis papers to live. I’m still working on my collage technique with some of these, but I just love them!

I have a lot of single sided scrapbook paper, and I thought this would be a great way to use some of it up. I purchased some digital downloads from BaersGarten on Etsy, and printed the plain side with lines to journal on. Cuz, sometimes a girl’s gotta write!

Then there’s this, Our Miss Audrey on a bike! See how awesome it is to have a home for my Flow mag. papers! I’m keeping this page as is, it’s perfect!

And now I have a place to use some of my awesome children’s book pages without having to cut them down to size! Nice!

 I shared a bit of this art journal on IG and have already been getting some feedback about putting some in my shoppe, so that might be happening soon!

As usual, thank you so much for your time,

Have a fab week,

~Patty
