A New Journal

I have been wanting to make a tall journal for quite awhile now and last night I made some time to make it.
This spread was inspired by a documentary I have become obsessed with, "Exit through the Gift Shop". A quirky and wonderful documentary by Banksy, a Graffiti Artist from England.

The above photo shows the cover of the journal as it stands right now. The cover has been constructed of Illustration Board and 1/4" plywood, which eventually will be covered with collage. The pages are made of box board. I like a good sturdy journal to work in. Not including the spiral binding the journal is 7" X 14".

It's been awhile since I have done a GPP Challenge and have to admit I have missed doing them. When I saw this one I just had to participate, the timing was perfect. Click here to go to the Challenge page.

Ingrid - thanks for coming back to play with us! LOVE the new tall journal - I just made a tall skinny one too. Plywood? Wow - that is a journal!!

Great looking page showing the Evidence that you are loving the Banksy film (me too!) You always surprise but you are so recognizable too - all great qualities.

Thanks for sharing your work with the team!

Ingrid--so wonderful to see this new, tall shape. And how well you make it work. It's fun to construct a challenge within a challenge. Love the starkness of the black and white with the splash of red!

Loving the tall skinny shape of the journal. I finally got around to seeing the Banksy movie last week – don’t know what has taken me so long as I have all the books about him, and of course living just half an hour from Bristol he’s a bit of a local hero. The film was a lot of fun, I enjoyed watching the lead character’s progression from lovable fool to taking everyone else for a fool :)

Hey, this doc is so fun! I've seen it more than once, but plan to see it again. I love your work-up. I like these colors and how grungy this one looks!

It's been a long time since I played along, too. I have been motivated by seeing works of participants like yourself. Rock on!

A few years ago, Banksy made a secret visit to Melbourne Australia. He has blessed our city walls with some of his AMAZING work, which I am proud to say I have seen LIVE. Haven't seen the film yet.....
