Three Ring Binder Art Journal
While exploring the art of art journaling, I have come up with the idea of personal art through a small 3 ring binder. Personal art is the creation of art just for you, not to sell, hang on walls, or give to friends. It's personal. I fill the binder with a wide variety of accumulated papers. Some I keep as is and others I prepare with paint or stamps or....whatever is at hand. Then as the mood strikes, I write or paint more on the pages. The absolute beauty of this process is the FREEDOM you have with your pages. Sequence is irrelevant as they can be changed out at any point OR even tossed. You are in control! The following is one of the first completed pages. I had painted a very quick acrylic sketch of a bird and then the words just came to mind.
