So here is the mini journal that I made for the Kate Crane lesson. I have to say it was a lot of work.. not hard, just very time consuming. Lots of pages needed colouring on both sides with several layers on each.
Despite the time taken I am pleased with how it turned out. I have no idea how I will use it yet. Kate suggested a travel journal, but as i don't really go anyway that won't work for me lol It will probably end up just as a handbag journal, to play in when I go to town and stop off for coffee.
I pretty much followed Kate's instructions, it is actually nice to just follow along and not have to think too much lol
My front cover features a stencil by Seth Apter I love these collage style stencils. The covers measure 13cm x13cm.
Here are my insides..of the book, not my actual insides, cos that would be a bit gross and not very arty lol Because of the paper that I was using I had enough to make two pockets instead of one.
I really like all the colour inside and the use of different sized pages.
So far all I have added is a few quotes here and there.
In total there are 50 small pages to work on, so it's a bit of a monster really .. plus 6 tags! However because of the concertina style it all folds up very neatly and is only 2 cm thick. I guess it will expand as i fill it, so it may become chunky.
Very happy to be able to tick one lesson off lol
