Journal of Scraps no 1

Journal of scraps title header

Yesterday I wrote about the process of making and pricing a hand bound art journal. Now it’s time to view a few of the many many pages in the big Journal of Scraps #1 that I just listed on Etsy. I hope you like them.

Journal of Scraps I: wise owl (pink)

When looking at these I just feel like filling every inch of the pages with more paint and then some writing, collage, doodles, memories and love…

If I don’t have a buyer it will be a easy choice to keep this one.

There is plenty of room to write on. I love writing on a smooth acrylic painted surface. Mmm…

Couldn’t help but to add some tape too. And don’t you agree that orange + pink go well together? Love this combo:

Oh and of course you want to see the delicious pink, green and yellow cover, front and back:

  1. WoW, i am amazed, i can already feel the ideas brewing, i would love to know where you get you inspiration and creativity. Me feeling suddenly jealous. :(

  2. Awesome journals, Hanna ! Such a fun place to play. I love the idea of journaling and adding to pages created by someone else. Especially with someone like you, with such a great eye !

  3. Lovely. I am very tempted, but my big stack of ready to use journals tells “no no no!”. I also like the idea of working in a journal somebody else made, it’s like a collaboration almost.

  4. Okay, if this is still available after the first of the month (low funds at the moment) I will scoop this beauty up! If it’s gone will you be making more?

  5. nu måste jag fråga, vad skriver du med för penna på akrylfärgsbakgrunder? det ser så fantastiskt ut med sådana sidor i dina dagböcker, men jag förstör alla mina pennor, de liksom “fastnar” … :(

    • Hej Kristin, det är viktigt att färgen är helt torr och helst ganska slät, vilket den blir om man “målar” med ett gammalt plastkort istället för med pensel. Jag köper alla möjliga pennor och ääälskar pennor, och tycker de flesta vattenfasta brukar fungera bra för mig på målade sidor. Helst svarta, de syns ju bäst förstås. För länge sedan skrev jag ett inlägg om pennor som kanske hjälper? Det finns även fler inlägg om olika sorters braiga pennor på bloggen. Hoppas det hjälper något?!

      • Tack, ska kolla in inlägget med pennorna! Och måla med ett plastkort måste jag testa, jättetack för svaret!

  6. for the pages with multiple images/scraps did you sew everything or glue some things? If you did use glue – is there a specific kind you find best for this craft?
