Art journaling in pocket size



I love stamping, colouring and fuzzy cutting. Usually I use the images for cardmaking, but if there are no actual needs for creating new cards, I take out my art journal books. Those pages are my creative playgrounds for playing with colour combinations and texture backgrounds, creating sceneries and telling stories with my stamped images and for storing lovely quote texts. I also use the pages for utilizing the last drops of paints from my pallet (you never throw paint away!), cleaning my brushes or using some leftover scraps I find on my crafting table. 

Stamps come in various sizes, so also the art journal page sizes need to vary. These pages are created in my smallest art journal book; a pocket size Moleskine art sketchbook (3.5 in x 5.5 in). It's perfect for working with stamps which are bit too large for an ATC card but not big enough for an A4 or A5 size page or page spread. 

If one evening I only have little free time but feel a strong need for crafting mindfulness I often spend the short crafting moment on colouring images. I have a tin box full of stamped, coloured and fuzzy cut images, and every now and then I empty the box by using the pictures for ATC's or art journal pages. 

These pages are quite simple, but creating them makes me happy. When I later browse through the book pages I often get a reflection of that happy feeling I felt when putting the page together. 

Hope you will have time to create something you like. Thanks for stopping by in my blog!
