1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to start an altered journal? on: January 31, 2010 06:53:05 AM
I know exactly how you feel--I'm just getting into the visual journaling myself, and looking at all the other gorgeous journals can be really overwhelming! Here's something I've found really helpful, though: Youtube! There are a couple great VJ-ers on there who have made videos about their pages and even how they handmade their journals. I've spent wayyyyy too much time this week watching these.

Here are a few artists' channels I've found helpful:

Violette makes gorgeous, bright journals using watercolor, acrylic, gesso, and some collage work. http://www.youtube.com/creativeboho

Teesha Moore goes through all of the steps she uses in a series of twelve videos that show you from start to finish how she handmakes her journals, then decorates them, then uses them. http://www.youtube.com/user/tracyvmoore#p/u/16/1z6qmXGRrsE

Milliande uses a whole range of techniques with paint, ink, gesso, and collage, and has a ton of videos uploaded. http://www.youtube.com/user/milliande#p/search/0/zSyoOCeIF80

That's gorgeous! A very pretty ATC. I'm just getting into ATCs myself, and it floors me how creative people can get with just a little card to work with.

Verrryyyy nice. <3

As a sixteen-year-old myself, I have to say, Annann, that your cousin would have to be crazy not to totally fall in love with this bag. I have! It's a nice design and the lining is very pretty.

These are great! Really cute and simple. Perfect sundresses for school, where you don't want to look too dressed up. I like them very much ^^

Aww, that's real cute! I bet your daughter loves it. I like the shape of the dress and the fabric you used (and who cares about a few missing pieces, anyway? She's rocking that t-shirt Wink)
