An Altered Filofax Art Journal

Last year I altered the cover and inside of a charity shop-sourced A5 black filofax with pastels with the intention of using it as an alternative art journal.

Today I finally got round to making the pages for the inside. 

I used printed pages that were taken from an old children's book and artistic pages that I have made myself.
The pages were cut & torn to size and I used my Crop-o-dile and a template to make the 6 holes needed to fit the filofax rings. It would have helped to have a 6 hole holepunch but they are very expensive!

Some of the pages are complete as they are, just waiting for some photos, magazine pics and journalling but on some I'm going to add more layers to with paint or papers.
Detail of some of the other pages.
 I also added some squared graph paper, acetate and envelopes.

I'm rather looking forward to doing some more creativity on these already interesting pages.

This is my entry for WIP Monday on Scrapscene

Thanks for stopping by today,
Nicky

PS - Apologies for any ads that pop-up, nothing to do with me, I think its a new addition that is courtesy of Blogger!
