I painted my first set of wonky birds on one side of an accordion folded piece of mixed media paper. Now I have finished painting four more birds on the other side of the paper. I am also going to show you how I added this paper to my journal.
To add this art to my journal I started with a strip of card stock that I had used to clean some extra ink off of a stencil.
I cut and folded strips off of the the piece of card stock.
This is the paper with the birds on both sides.
Here I slipped the folded card stock underneath the binding thread that the journal is sewed together with.
I glued each side of the card stock to the bottom panel of the painting.
Now my birds have a home in between two pages of my journal and I can open out the folded painting and view both sides.
Have a wonderfully creative week,

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
