Art journal


Isn't this a neat little thing?
Curly Girl made this in art class this week. It is a little sketch book with a couple of her water colors attached. There is no front or back or right side up of the little book....pretty cute.
It opens up accordian style...sort of.
She can keep it handy and fill it up with sketches this Summer.

I couldn't help but think how this could work for someone redoing their house or a room.
I've always taped or stapled everything to a file folder but with this you could attach the little paint and fabric swatches between the pages....maybe make a couple of them envelope style..........

Also...what a great gift idea..........

Hey, Curly Girl! Your book is lovely - your watercolours look great against the black background. I would use a book like that - great job!

Very neat! That type of notebook could be handy for a lot of different things. I love learning about book binding and that method is interesting. Those watercolors do look beautiful!

Your book is so neat. You did a great job on it. I could see me using this type of book for many things.

Curly girl is going to teach her mom how to make this and we'll post the 'tutorial' on this blog for anyone interested in making one for themselves!
