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 paperand bound with the same binding method based upon the Coptic stitch. I used paper that was gifted to me by Gene Brownto decorate the outside and inside covers.
I had a "what if" thought when I found an old, heavy weight cardboard fabric header in one of my storage boxes. The cardboard was a good thickness for a journal cover. Since the header is folded to hold fabric samples, there's a front and back piece. I cut off 5.5" from one end. Then I cut along the crease separately the front and back cover pieces.
Instead of making a journal with signatures, I opted to cut strips of 100lb Bristol paper and make an accordion style journal. I cut a spine from cardboard then attached the covers and spine with decorative duct tape. The opposite edges of the covers were decorated with washi tape. The final size is 5.5" x 3.5" x 1".
I took a much needed day off from work. I got up early and went hiking with a friend at Santa Monica Conservancy Parkland. We took the Vanalden Vista trail. It was a great reminder that there are still places like this in Los Angeles.
I marked all the pages in the Mini Art Journal with lunch time collages. I want to continue this practice since I will be working mostly from home for the time being. I made a new art journal in a different format.
