Art Journaling 119

You can make your own art journal for just a few dollars, with just a little binding help from a Staples or Kinko's store.
1. I like to use the cardboard from the backs of drawing pads as it is really sturdy. Cut two 6" x 9" panels, and cut lots of 9" x 12" paper in half to go in between. Take this to a business that will bind this together for you. The coil binding works best as it allows for the pages to open and lay flat.
2. My journal cover was made from some donated iron-on applique...um, things. I'm not sure what you call them. I glued them onto the cardboard, let it dry, and then covered the entire cover with black acrylic paint.
3. When the paint was dry, I rubbed some gold paint (acrylic or tempera) over the surface, just enough to add some shine. To seal the surface, spray with a sealer or cover with Mod Podge.
