52-Weeks of Book Binding, Art Journals & more...

Week Four

This week I created an Inspiration Journal.
Here is another super easy, super fun journal to make.

Supplies needed for this journal are Bristol Board, Photos (your own or from magazines), a paper cutter and prong fasteners.

The pages for the book are cut at 5" X 11".

Once all the pages are cut, measure the width of the fasteners, mark and  punch holes in each page.

Choose pictures that inspires you.  You can use pictures you have taken or pictures from magazines.

If you have chosen your own pictures, print them on photo paper from your printer.  Once you have all your pictures, cut each picture 4-1/2" X 4-1/2"


Glue each picture to the end of your pages, add lines for journaling (optional) and score 1" from the left end of your page.

Assemble your pages together.

Choose a front cover for your journal.  I thought this picture was appropriate for my cover.  I liked the idea of a door opening into the pages that inspired me.  As you look through your pages, look at each picture and tell a story.  How does the picture inspire you?  What do you see?  Does it bring back memories; good/bad?  Reflect and let each picture speak to you and see what happens.
