As a scrapbooker, I think I’d have to say that one of my most favorite things to make is a mini album! I love using travel photos and making a small album to document the whole trip, rather than having 10+ 12″x12″ layouts. I know everyone doesn’t feel the same way, but I love them.

It’s definitely something I love doing. It may not be for everyone, but if you’re thinking about starting an art journal, here are a few reasons why I like to art journal and why you might enjoy it: First, what is an art journal exactly?
Well, I think it is whatever you make it. It’s up to the artist who is maki
I’ve been getting more and more into using Copics. I’ve always thought they would be really neat to use, but at $7 a marker I was a bit hesitant to actually buy any and use them.
