Art Journal: Here and Now

This page contains a hidden surprise!  Pull up on the black button (on the right side of the page), and pop-ups slide both UP and DOWN at the same time!  It’s a “Push-Pull” pop up!  Here’s a brief video that shows this in motion:

This type of slide is called a “Push-Pull” pop-up — and I’ll be teaching a class on this technique on October 28th.  (More info HERE).

For the rest of this page, I used combinations of rubber stamping, found images, washi tape, and rub-ons to embellish the page.  Since the page was splitting at the binder, I used a strip of washi tape to hold it all together.  (That’s one of the problems with art journaling in an old book: the binding doesn’t always hold up).

It’s fun to include pop-ups in art journals, scrapbooks, and greeting cards.  Who doesn’t love a hidden surprise!
