Art Journal DIY Craft

Now that I'm moving back to my home town in beautiful California, I've had quite a bit of new inspiration. I'm looking forward to spending more time painting, sewing & making DIY crafts. This tutorial is a cute new art journal to get you though the warm summer months. If it's too hot out side, get crafty inside! Make some iced coffee & and start journaling... enjoy! 

Supplies: You'll need a pretty new journal, some magazines or old books to cut (I used a vintage Better Homes and Gardens), photos, scissors & adhesive.

I used a recycled art journal from a local thrift store. I love the vintage book covers you can find buried away in thrift stores. It's like hunting for treasure!

The inside pages are my favorite for art journaling because they are a collection of pretty vintage papers... all recycled.♥ 

I've been filling pages with magazine cut outs, instax photos, polaroids, & hand written journal entries & drawings!  

I'll be carrying this journal in my bag all summer & fall to document small inspirations & keep photos of happy moments. xo. Ariel Shay
