Art is anything you can get away with.

Hello everyone,

Today I have a tiny little book to show you. Sometimes I just fancy doing something different and one day I made a little booklet from one sheet of 12' x 12' paper. It was lying on my desk when I  thought to cover the outside of it in fabric and next to add gesso to the cover and the pages too. Before I knew it I had stencilled, stamped and doodled on the pages and this little book was born ! I love it and will make more !




Here is the outside. If you want to make one of these books; there are lots of tutorials on the internet and youtube. Just look for 'book from one sheet of 12 x 12 paper'. 

There are 8 double spread mini art journals in this book and here are the photos. 


Spread no. 1
I used an UmWow Studio stencil and Distress Oxides for this. 


Spread 2. Stencil used is by UmWow Studio and I used Distress Oxide Ink.

You are so creative! I love each spread, each are separate, wonderful works of art! But all in a little book!
