The second art journal's cover is painted black. I wrote the purpose of the journal on the cover: "make art every day."
Like I mentioned earlier, the pages are from a pack of old teaching material. The folder contains transparent and thin cardboard pages. The latter I used in the art journal as the accordion pages. The second art journal contains one and the second two A4 pages.
Leikkasin kivasta kankaasta palat ja liimasin ne kansiin.
I cut pieces of nice fabric for the covers and glued them on the cardboard.
I glued the edge pages on the covers. I used gel medium as a glue, but any other glue probably also works.
I have more than one box full of treasures. Here are two boxes full of old books and recycled paper, e.g. my old drawings, magazine pages, paper bags, teaching material, unused Gelli prints and blank examination papers. Treasures! (And yes, I should clean and organize my craft room better. :D)
