Journal all the way…
This is a fun way of creating journals .
Mixing up your style of journals can be as inspiring as what you put in them.
|Fold sheet in half then fold both 'sides in to the centre creating a "W".|
|Her you can see the sheet lade out flat. Get a nice crease using a boning tool.|
|Repeat the process but turning the sheet of paper . Again using a boning tool so score and crease.|
|Here's your piece folded and with all it's creases.|
|Now. Looking at this image, you can see that I made cuts on the crease lines. Cut up to the end crease only. creation an "M".|
|Fold the papers in a concertina like fashion. And there you have it. A new journal.|
With such wonderful family and friends to give gifts to, sometimes thinking outside the box is the way to go . Perhaps creating a "Maze Journal" for one of your loved ones with CANSON watercolour paper and Schmincke Watercolours would make a great personal gift.
Or for those who you know wish to get their creative juices flowing, make a mini maze journal and add some water-colours and a Printecon Neptune "Quill" brush for the perfect Christmas gift.
SUPPLIES usedin this project were; a Canson 300GSM Watercolour sheet of paper A3.
Schmincke Watercolour pallette
A variety of Princeton Quill brushes.
So with some delicious colour washes and/or sketching and watercolour touches, you've created a wonderful gift or travel journal for personal use.
With your very own mini fold out journal, a little water and your gorgeous Princeton watercolour brushes, you're ready to escape and create. Or make a special gift for a loved one.
|Schmincke Watercolours 1/2 pans in tin. A variety of Princeton Neptune quill brushes and my Canson watercolour maze journal.|
