Art Journal

I started an art journal several months ago. It's a fun little book where I get to play with my supplies and document things that might not make it onto a scrapbook page. To streamline the process, I like to use either scraps from recent pages or leftover kit contents. The colors are already matched which is a great time saver. Playing with scraps, I'm also not as worried about using up something valuable that I might want or need later. Double bonus!

Remember that paper chain I used as a mask recently? It's found a place on a journal page, along with some scraps and stickers from Scraptastic's Great Adventures kit:


Do you have an art journal, smash book, or similar? What do you do with your scraps?

Very cool page!
And love that you recycled your mask :)

I don't have an art journal. But I try to use as many scraps as I can on cards or even another layout. If not they go into my scrap box which I share with my four year old daughter :)

Wonderful. I love how you reused your mask. I am so wanting to "Smash" and I need to just break down and "do it." LOL Thanks for the comment on D's Paper Studio today.

Great page, I like that you used your left over papers.
I have done a whole art journal. I know there isn't a right or wrong way to art journal, but if there was I think I did it the wrong way, lol. But I did enjoy it :)

Awesome use of your mask!

I don't have an art journal or smash book. I have organized my scraps according to color. They are stored right behind my desk, so I only have to turn around to go through them. Since I started doing this system, I am getting much more use from my scraps.
