|3 pages folded and sewn together.|
Do this 5 times to create 5 booklets.
*15 pages of heavy water color paper cut or folded and torn to 9" by 11" dimensions
( fold them in half to create the shape of a book 4 1/2" by 5 1/2 " and put them in groups of 3)
|5 booklets taped together to form|
one art journal book. You are ready
to make the cover!
* Binding tape (Slip the tape through the thread on the outside spine of each booklet and hold them all together.
can be found at art supply
stores in many sized. For
this project, use 11" x 14 "
*1 adhesive backed piece of canvas
size 11" by 14"
* Water colors ( or other paint )
* Masking fluid (optional)
* Stencils ( used these to plan my designs
but they are optional.)
* Ruler (before you paint the canvas,
use the ruler to mark off where the binding,
the front cover and the back cover will be.)
|Paint your canvas with whatever paint|
you like. I used some masking fluid,
water color crayon and markers for mine.
Notice that there is extra room on the top
and bottom edges that will not show. It
will get folded over when you cover
|Finished Art Journal!|
|Once the cover is dry and your |
booklets are sewn and taped together;
simply cover the book.
Use scissors to trim corners.
