Nataša May, and
On Wednesday, I am off to Art-Is-You in Nashville. The Art-Is-You retreats are nurturing, full of creativity, and lots of fun. I wanted to have a special journal to record my time there, and decided to make one for this test drive!
I was inspired to make the journal in the shape of a cloud because I was using the Rain stencil, and I'll be on Cloud 9 at Art-Is-You!
Here's a quick video to show you how I made it.
I hope this inspires you to create your own journal. All you need are some old boxes, paper, duct tape, a rubber band, paint and stamps, and a playful attitude! I got the idea to make a duct tape journal from watching Diana Trout's wonderful videos here and here, and to use the grocery boxes from Jennibelle's terrific cereal box tutorial here.
Don't forget to visit
