Last night I played in my journal again! Love it! This morning I got up to finish it up. Now in the mood to cut some chipboard and get 3 dimensional! It's funny how you can be away from it for a couple of days and have this absolute need to get back to it...But first I thought I would share my art journal pages with you.
I was trying to find a way to incorporate more tags into a page. So, I thought of something easy...folding the pages into pockets. With a little adhesive tape it was a breeze.
Here's what I did....First, let me apologize for the darkness of the photos! I couldn't get the Aviary editing software to process the pictures! Go figure! Hahahaha! Me and technology! Good Grief Gertrude!
You will need two journal pages to make this work. On the first page, I used my ruler and a stylus. I scored from the center of the journal over to the right 1-inch. I then scored over from that score line to another 3/4-inch. Last, I scored 1/2-inch in from edge of the page. Fold on all the score lines.
Now for a little tape....I used some score-tape on the backside of the mountain fold and taped the page together to form a little flap. Then I placed a small strip of tape on each inside end of the flap forming a narrow pocket. Next, I adhered the 1/2-inch edge down to the backside for a clean edge.
Last, I sprayed the edge of the second page with inks. I then placed three #8 tags down to the backside of the folded page to get an idea of where I needed to place tape to form three pockets for the tags. Now, I normally wouldn't use tape for pockets as the tags will inevitable get stuck to the tape. However, the space between the tags and the tape were wide enough so I just did it. LOL!
I pulled the tape backing and adhered it down to the second page and inserted my three tags and a larger #12 tag to the pockets.
Here's a few pictures of the finished pages...
OK, off to get crafty with some chipboard...See y'all in a bit!
By The Way...Happy Saturday Everybody!
