Participating in online art swaps is a fun past time of mine when time allows. I love making something for someone based on a theme or idea and then swapping within the group. It's inspiring to see what other people dream up!
This past week, I joined a challenge to create an art journal out of an ordinary manilla folder. Challenge accepted! Never done something like this before so I figured I'd give it a try and see what happened.
Turns out, I totally loved doing it. So much so, that I found a huge box of plain manilla folders in my supply cabinet that I will absolutely be turning into more of these little treasures! A future video is what I'm thinking so you can see how I create it! Yes, let's add that to my list of things I need to do!
So here's what I came up with for my challenge. Not bad for a first try and I even filled the little pockets with small pieces of artwork that I hope the recipient likes and can use!
