Summer Art Journal

Morning everyone!

I have a mini art/photo journal to share with you today. I loved the papers so much that I wanted to make something I could keep forever!

I have a very different concept in plan for this art journal. Because the papers are SOOO pretty, I am planning on photocopying any drawings, memoirs, or photos onto acetate, and then overlaying them onto the patterned paper, so that the paper still shows through. Hopefully that will look cool!

Here's some more close up detail: it's hard to see but I have coated everything in lots of glitter! :-)
That's it from me! Tomorrow is Guest Designer day so please continue to email Cathy your creations at cathy@craftyalley.com.

  1. What a gorgeous book Katie. LOVE the acetate idea and would love to see if when you complete it :D

  2. This is so pretty and I love the acetate idea!

  3. This is such a clever use to show off the beautiful papers. I really love the idea of the acetates too, so clever!

  4. Very clever! Awesome idea with the acetate for I have many patterns I don't want to cover up! I think I have ugly DP or too cute to use!!

  5. Lovely Katie, as are all your projects. Would also love to see an acetate page once it's complete. Such a great idea! Hugs, Robyn xx
