Art Journal: Mermaid Ring Binder

· Read in about 1 min · (143 words) ·

On Saturday I attended a class given by Regina Portscheller, in which we created ring binder art journals.

We made the binders from scratch, building them up from book board, collaging and painting the cover and attaching the ring mechanism.

I am making a book about Mermaids, so I chose to paint my cover a watery aqua color.

The inside of the cover is also collaged and painted just like the outside. In the image above, you can also see the ring mechanism.

A lot of the images and papers I have that I plan to include in my book are aqua and coral. I love the combination of colors!

This is a basic page, not necessarily completed. I don’t know where it will end up in the book, yet.

I will be adding more to the cover and making pages this week!
