Deconstructed Art Journal
Techniques for Making a Custom Book

Deconstruct and Reconstruct a Custom Art Journal!

Create your own personalized art journal in which you can add or subtract pages as often as you want with techniques from Rae Missigman in Deconstructed Art Journal! You'll start the process by tearing apart a discarded hardcover book. Then Rae shows you, and student Amy Jones, how to turn the cover into a painted, layered, and texturized abstract artwork that will serve as the cover for your journal. Enjoy a session of monoprinting using a gelatin printing plate to create a stash of papers for the inside, perfect for journaling and marking up later! Finally, Rae demonstrates how to create an elastic bungee binding that allows you to add or remove pages as often as you want!

In this video you will:

  • Deconstruct a hard-bound book.
  • Dye ribbon for a decorative closure.
  • Monoprint using a gelatin plate and upcycled tools.
  • Use stencils, acrylic paint, and texture paste to create an abstract painted cover.
  • Learn a no-stitching-required binding technique.
  • RUNTIME: 81 minutes
