Goodmorning “woyww-hoppers,” ready for yet another round of ‘desk hopping’ around the world? I know I am! And of course I show you what’s on my desk too this morning.
(What’s On My Workdesk? Wednesday is a weekly blogseries/hop hosted by Julia in the United Kingdom and lots of crafty people share photos of their desks every Wednesday.)
After working on the stenciled folded booklet that I wrote a tutorial about (see guestpost
at Balzer Designs) I had some free time to play in my ‘Chronicles’ art journal (I will publish those pages later) and to visit the internet/blogs. One thing I came across was a picture of a tiny, little journal and I got so inspired that I decided to make one too. It’s now laying on my desk, along with the other ‘mess’… come on in and see for yourself.

See that tiny little book in the middle of the photo? It’s not finished yet (I still have to alter the cover) but I liked working this small (2.5 x 1.7 inch / 6 x 4,5 cm.) I already folded pages for another ‘tiny journal.’
The inspiration for these came from Roxanne Coble over at By Bun
Not only her post about the mini journals is worth a visit, I looked around on her blog and there’s much more inspiring stuff (she creates beautiful – bigger – art journal pages too.)
Here’s some pages from my tiny journal…
It’s really satisfying to work this small… and, as Roxanne puts it: “the minis are great […] as a place to dump leftover paint or bits of ephemera.” I have the feeling I’m hooked already so I presume you will see quite a lot of them mini’s popping up on my worktable in the next couple of months.
Hope you all have a creative day.
Oh, and when you’re running out of ideas: make a mini!
