Repurposed Map Book = Art Journal
So far all I've done is the outside cover. I used my Gelli plate to create the green textured background on both the front and back of the journal. As you can see in the close up of the back, between the spiral stencil I used and the actual paint texture, it looks really great (I think :o)) so I've decided just to leave the back with only the bit of a doodled border.
On the front, I've used some sprayed and stamped paper on which I had written "Create" using matte medium (mixed with some black paint). I cut up some extra bits to add spaces to write the other words and to create the little circles. The doodled border you see is the same on the back of the journal.
Cost of my new art journal: .50¢
