Paperbag Travel Journal, Sample Page

posted in: Art Journal, Haiti, Recycle | 2
Haiti+paperbpg journalThis is my opening page in my homemade Haiti Travel Journal, which I am sharing just because it’s the kind of format that I am always trying to encourage my art journal students to try. The basic idea is that entries don’t have to be created in a linear format, meaning a list from the top down of all the things done in a day. Just sketching items in a random fashion and then adding words around them is so much more fun, and a lot more forgiving too if you happen to forget something. I used the cloud date heading as a standard format on each page, but the drawings just went wherever there was room for them.

    I love your blog!

    Can you explain the “paperbag” portion of your journal?

  2. What a great idea! I can see that kids would do well with something more creative like this. I will have to show it to my 7 year old as an idea for an upcoming trip.
