My new 8x8in art journal

Early this year at Crafter’s Warehouse I got an 8×8 inch lucite “book”, it was two 8×8 inch 1/4 inch thick sheets of clear lucite with 2 holes in them to put rings in so you can make a book.

I have art journaled before but it was always scattered in altered books i was playing with and once something was in the book it was very difficult to move it around so I decided to play with this idea.

I got 3 inch clasp rings and began making art journal pages on cardstock and on paper that was then put on card stock, each page is at least 2 sheets of card stock thick since I do each page seperately and then glue them together, this way I dont accidently mess up a page I have done a lot of work on, it also allows me to wait to put pages together til I know what order I want them in.

The great thing about the clasp rings is I can move pages around and make the book quite thick, I can also change textures of pages and use unusual mediums much more easily.

Here are the first 14 pages
