Girly Art Journal Album

Howdy Crafters ~ Some of my readers have noticed that I have been working on various Art Journals - displaying my art work on pages and then leaving room for the recipient to write messages.

Here is one that I have finished and will be gifted to someone in the near future.

This Art Journal has 8 pages of areas to write plus the inside Chipboard cover - both front and back.

I find this type of art relaxing and stretching me to be creative. Some of my Art Journals include Paints, Inking, stamping, and other supplies in my craft room.

This art journal also includes die cutting, card cuts, stickers, Ribbon, Bakers Twine, Envelopes, and whatever else I saw in the craft room.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day. Photos pages below with captions and Album in the making before assembled.

  1. This is SO sweet, Gail. Thank you so much for sharing it with us at Word Art Wednesday. I'm always SO grateful to have you share your wonderful creations with us.

  2. This one is really pretty too! You're doing an awesome job with these mini albums! I really like the cover on this one and I also like those little fold-out spots! The album I started last year didn't have anything fancy like that - you are very creative!

  3. Enjoyable to browse wonderful artwork like this.

  4. I love the sewing theme!!! I just posted a sewing themed card and find the topic very sentimental and fun to work with. This is such a fantastic idea and the page inserts are amazing. What a gorgeous album! We are so thankful you shared with us at Mini Album Makers this month. Big hugs, Autumn
