Small Art Journal

I mentioned the other day I have a small art journal so I thought I'd share a little more of that. It's a 4" x 6" drawing pad. You can see the way I bought it on the left, and on the right is my improved cover, thanks to some scrapbook paper and washi tape.

My work is obviously more collage based than most art journals which often use paint and inks, etc. I generally make these pages at the end of the day while relaxing so I don't want to make a big mess and haul out lots of materials.

I did fill one pad which is why I have a second in the first photo. I need to decorate that cover! So do you have an art journal???

Thanks for viewing!


  1. No, I don't but I used to do collages years ago and I never thought of covering up the outside of notebooks even if you didn't use it as an art journal. Very nice!

    1. Thanks for commenting. Yes, covering a not-too-exciting cover really jazzes it up and makes it more personal. Fun to do too!

  2. I don't have an Art Journal..Love the one with the wolf on it..Looks like you are feeling better.

  3. I have all kinds of you know! And yes, I have an art journal. And then I go to my desk...and sew! hahaha! Enjoy your weekend. I hope you are feeling lots better now. Hugs!

  4. So cute, Diane - no journals here!

  5. at the moment my AJ is kind of just in my sketchbook with some finished artsy pages, some rough drafts, some ideas jotted down, etc. partly thru laziness & partly b/c it does then somewhat function as a sort of diary of what i've been doing, artwise. i kind of want to go get a small bound book just for fun collages now, tho, having seen these beauties. i LOVE this, diane... it reminds me of ICAD but also sort of looser and more personal... this just seems like "YOU" to me!!! ♥
