Art Journal Flip-through

let's open the book


a flip-through video of my art journal

 

Hello beautiful artist!

You might remember I recently finished my art journal and if you missed it, I'm sharing the making of the last page with a video on my blog HERE. Right afterwards I also filmed a flip-through of the whole journal! It’s such a joy to hold in my hands this big, chunky, dreamy, artsy, completely personal storybook, and I'm excited to take you along! So get yourself a nice cup of tea (or iced tea if it's as hot where you are as it's been in France lately), switch off your phone, relax and join me in the studio…

 

the pages

Here are most of the pages again if you wish to take a slower, closer look. There are just a few that I haven’t shared before and didn’t take pictures off, so I’ll add them a little later as time allows. Just click on any image to open it at full size:

finishing touches

Once my journal is finished, I rub a layer of beeswax or cold wax medium over the pages to prevent them from sticking together. You can watch a quick how-to video as well as a flip-through of my previous journal and plenty more resources and inspiration on my website here:

I hope that flipping through my journal has inspired you, and that it motivates you to keep filling yours! There are so many ways to do art journaling. Some people like to have several journals going at once, others, like me, work in just one. Some will fill a journal in just a few months, while it takes me a good two years. What matters is to just do it your way and enjoy every bit of the journey!
