Welcome

Hello and Welcome to the Art Journalers & Altered Books Group!

 

This is the place where you can share your art journal pages or your altered books. Let's discuss techniques, ideas, materials and inspiration!

 

If you'd like to Show & Tell, you can start your own discussion by clicking the big blue "Add a discussion" button near the middle of this page.

If you would like some advice on a specific work-in-progress, you can start your own discussion by clicking the big blue "Add a discussion" button near the middle of this page.

Click here to learn how to upload images into your forum posts (which is important so that people can see your art within the post, rather than as an attachment link beneath your post).

Just two simple rules:

  • Please keep all discussions relevant to art journals and altered books, and all aspects of making an art journal or altered books.
  • Be friendly and considerate in your posts.

Thanks for joining & have fun!
