Garbage Journal Mini Workshop

This is my planning journal, it is 9.5" in height and 11" wide.  This journal took approximately 5 hours from start to finish.

The journal directly below is an everyday journal.  It measures 8" in height and 10" wide.
This month's free mini workshop for members at KathyAnne Art is Garbage Journals.  Non members can take the monthly workshops for a fee of $9.95. This workshop takes the participant through ideas and creating these types of journals.  Registration for the workshop is at the link above.  The workshop is ongoing - online.  Take it at your leisure.
This is my studio journal-the pages
 7" in height and 5" wide.
                                                                                                            This small journal is 4" x 4" and is
                                                                                                            easy to carry with for jotting notes                

Garbage journals consist of leftovers, collected papers, maps, fabrics etc.  
Most of the time, mine are created for a specific purpose, but they are always
created rough and in a hurry.  These journals are fast, spontaneous and fun to make.  

The largest of the journals shown was created start to finish in 4  hours.  The little 4” x 4” journal was created in 2 hours. All the materials, including the pieces for the cover were in a box or a drawer.  

You would be amazed how many items are around your studio or workspace for this type of project.  Start to pull elements into a space and see what happens. Tailor your journal to the size of your materials.
