My Art Journal
I have been doing Art for a really long time. I am curious about all kinds of mediums and I like to explore as many as I can. One of the things I also do today is to try and work in Journals as this is an easy way to store Artwork until some time that I decide to frame or sell it.
There are tons of Artists who like to combine Art and Journalling, as do I; however, the Art Journals that are available to me are usually books with wonderful covers but when you open them up, the paper is awful. Working with paint or glue on any paper under around 220gsm becomes messy and the paper buckles or breaks down.
This obsession with creating a good Art Journal with good paper suitable for various mediums had me making a couple of proto-types until my students started noticing them and requesting similar journals.
Well, the rest they say is history. I got my hubby involved and we made 50 beautiful Journals that contain 62 pages of tried and tested quality paper, in a colourful cardboard box, which we are selling for just R699.00 per Journal
