How to make a Mini Art Journal from and Envelope - Video Tutorial

 Hi there!

I have some news for all the journal lovers of you. From this Friday on I will share a video about how to make and fill a mini journal every Friday during the next weeks. We will play until this journal is finished!
The ones of you, that are following my instagram page have already seen some sneak peeks. Today we start by making the journal from an gelli printed envelope. 

 My envelope measures 23cm by 16cm (9" x 6.25"). I hope you enjoy the video:

Here are some photos of the inside:

About this series:
I'm sharing some of my intuitive art journal spreads in this series. All videos will NOT be part of any Design Team work. I pick the supplies that I wanna use right in this moment.
Art Journaling is a very big part of my creative life. It means, I find time to get some mental relief, I write down the thoughts or quotes that are imortant for me.
Creating in my journal is also some kind of art practicing. I learn a lot about the different mediums, I am using, and I develope new ideas to use in prospective work.

Of course I will always give you a list of supplies. I know how frustrating it is, if you see a tool in a video and can't find out what it is. You will find the supplies in the video description.

I hope I can give you some inspiration. Art journaling doesn't have to be perfect!!! The result must have a meaning to YOU.
Your body needs movement your soul needs colours, patterns and words - no perfection!
