Pop up Technique in Repurposed Book Art Journal

This past weekend, I went down the YouTube rabbit hole looking for simple, single page bookbinding videos. While down that rabbit hole, I stumbled upon a 2017 video by LorriMarie Jenkins showing how to add a pop up element to an altered book page. Click here to watch her video. It is something I have been interested in trying. Here is a short video of my first attempt at creating a pop up element in my repurposed book art journal.

 

By the way, I did find some good videos on simple, single page bookbinding. First I need to prep all the materials before making the journal.

New lunch time collages

Here are this week's lunch time collages. I must admit it's been a challenging work week and it has shown in my art. I struggled to come up with collage ideas. When I finally did, I struggled to execute. I pushed through it and looking forward to recharging this weekend.

New lunch time collages

This week's lunch time collages. I noticed after creating the last two collages that both have fall colors. Honestly, unintentional on my part. I must be longing for cooler weather. It looks like that won't happen anytime soon in the Los Angeles area. Next week it's forecasted to be in the 90s.

New lunch time collages

This week's lunch time collages. A short video about the journal is here.

I finished the lunch time art journal that's featured in the video linked above. Here the two final collages.




I made a new art journal to continue this practice.This new art journal is a similar format. It's 4.5" x 5" with a 2" spine, 26 pages of 100lb Bristol paper and bound with the same binding method based upon the Coptic stitch. I used paper that was gifted to me by Gene Brown to decorate the outside and inside covers.
