We are in a new season over at the Get Messy Art Journal community and the journal is to be small, nay, tiny. Always up for a arty challenge I am going to try and do the tiny and see where it takes me (new glasses most likely!).
I am not sure I am going to like working small, but I will do my best and I always have options to use a larger journal if I feel the need! In fact I am not planning to use a journal in book form at all, I am very drawn to using all kinds of papers, cards and ephemera of a small size for my tiny journaling.
So what are my options? I could use a small journal, lots of brands make perfectly good little journals full of lovely paper. Or I could branch out and see what I can find and use.
The more I looked the more things I saw that I could use, vintage photos are usually small, paint chip colour samples, tickets, old rolodex cards, playing cards, plain paper cut into circles or tiny sheets, tiny flash cards or a small book which I could alter.
I have decided (for now) to use separate sheets or ephemera pieces for my ‘journal’ (is it still a journal if it is not bound?). I have some watercolour paper cut up along with my tiny ephemera treasures and I want to try it all!
How about postage stamps? Have I gone too far?!
Happy Monday x
