B&W Flip Flap Journal


I made this for a Christmas gift way back in October but absolutely loved putting it all together.


I created all the backing papers myself and printed them off.


I decided to leave a black border on all the pages. 


Panels were cut into 5.5" square and 2.5" x 5.5" pieces.


I picked out some images and built up the pages, also using magazine images.


I added tissue tape to some of the pages, used portfolio pastels, pencils and pens to shade and doodle.


I also stamped some shapes in Decoart everlasting chalky paint.


This is an aerial view with all the pages covered apart from the middle one on the back which needs to be blank as that is the one you stick onto the cover.



And I did umm and arrr but finally I added some words!!


Not to all the pages, but enough!!


And the finished piece. You can see where the cover has been added to the middle panel and you can see the two front flaps (the stripey ones at the back).
