I love love love making tiny books. You just fold a couple of papers together, and then you have something to keep working with/in/on.
This tiny book of cut and paste is one of the many mini art journals that I have made through the years. It is perfect for summer, if you’re going somewhere other than your home office or studio, because it can fit into a hand bag, for example.
I used neon pink duct tape for the spine, but I’ve also sewn it together like I usually do.
In this tiny Book of Cut and Paste the papers are mostly made out of my own painted papers, as the foundation. But it’s decorated with found papers (like wrapping paper and packaging) and bought papers (like scrap book papers).
Inside the papers I used are an eclectic mix of this and that. Some of the pages are more “done” than others, but I like all the spreads as they look here. Enjoy.
Tiny journals are perfect for smaller type images to get to shine, or for using decorative tape or stickers. They’re the perfect size for many (tiny) joyful moments. They make great little gifts too, but I have a hard time parting with mine when I’m all done.
I made this mini art journal a couple of years ago, but never got around to sharing the photos I took then. But it’s never too late in my world, to share something you’ve made – I hope you’ll agree.
Have you every made a mini art journal? Let me know if you too enjoy the small format at times. Because, as stated before, size matters.
Wishing you a creative and calm weekend.
