Artful Journal

As some of you know I attended a workshop at Art from the Heart with Tim Holtz last week, so it’s probably about time I shared some pictures with you of the journal we made.

Such a lot went into the covers. Art parts, sticky back canvas, die cut grunge board, kraft resist papers, distress stains, grunge blocks, alpha-parts and a small pile of idea-ology. I will be doing this again.

I have decided to keep my book as “a place for art”, somewhere to put ATC’s or little pieces of art I create.  I’m bad for not creating just because I can. Things have to have a place to go afterwards, or a use.  I don’t allow myself to just play as much as perhaps I should.  So this will be a journal full of "just because”.   There are lots of pocket pages to add in ATC’s and tags.

And finally the back, with the date in alpha-parts and yet more idea-ology.

The kit we had was truly amazing with so much product in it and more than enough to keep this little journal going for a wee while yet.

Sadly I was a complete numpty and left my camera at home, but I have been sent some photo’s from some of the lovely ladies that were also at the workshop, so I have those, along with Dyan’s fabulously designed ticket to serve as a reminder of the afternoon.

That is just brilliant! i am definitely going to buy some of the alphabet blocks (not sure what Tim is actually calling them!). Can I ask where the blank journal is from as it looks brilliant for altering.Thanks for sharing :)

Thanks Hannah.

We used the new Wendy Vecchi Art Parts large creative covers to make the journal. lbcrafts have some in stock. They are really sturdy.

Absolutely stunning - so WISH I could have been there. Off to mutter darkly to myself and think greenishly envious thoughts ...
