Coloring Pages In At Journals

IMG_1036.JPGI have been experimenting with coloring pages as another media in my art journals. These pages are in the journal that I am creating for my grandchildren that is my personal story.

An art journal is really a scrapbook of your thoughts, ideas and dreams. It is a look into the person who is you.

For this layout, I took two small coloring pages and colored them with the Papermate Ink Joy Pens. More about them in another post. Once I colored them, of course I had to add some glitter. In this case, I used glitter glue and regular glitter. The little butterflies were the negative part of a cutout from my Cricut.  I am going to add some journaling to explain my love of color.

I used glitter washi tape to add a little more color to the pages. I have lots of odd letters, so I went into my stash and glued them on. There are free coloring pages all over the internet. You could cut out elements from any page to add a little zest to your scrapbook pages too.


Using Scraps To Make Mini Journals

This week Cricut Design Studio offered two mini scrapbooks as a freebie. I wanted to focus on journaling, so I made two of these a really mini books. My goal was to add some journaling words and maybe a little title. Then tuck them into an envelope on a scrapbook layout. I am happy the way they came out. Think outside of the box when you are journaling on your pages.
