Mini Journal Pages

Nearly four years ago, I decided to move to England to live and work in a community of young special needs individuals. When I arrived I was nineteen years old and knew no one, and I was incredibly excited to do something meaningful in a foreign country. I brought with me no art supplies, as I had only just begun exploring art journaling.

During my year-long stay, I dived into iHanna's beautiful blog and became so intrigued that I created a very small journal from scrap paper, borrowed paint from the art cupboard, collected all the paper scraps I could find, and experimented with all the brand new techniques I was learning.

Here are the first pages:






What I so love about the size - it's only about 3 x 4 inches (7.5 x 10 cm) - is that I had no fear of messing up a page or of wasting supplies. At the same time, it was just right to explore new techniques in without worrying about how to pull a whole page together.

More to come soon!
