There are many ways to set up a travelling art journal,
I am just setting up this one for the Australian Art Journal Swap
I like to have a title on the outside and a title page when the front cover is opened.
I also have a little mini booklet just inside the front cover to welcome my fellow artists and to share any hopes or guidelines I might have for that journal.
I tend to offer a variety of different pages, here there are pages with extra flaps and others without, I also do the initial spread to set the tone for the journal. I think it might be harder for others to be the first to work in a pristine new journal that belongs to someone else.
In the back I like an area for each artist to sign in.
Here I have included tags in pockets.
I also have a bigger pocket in the back of the journal for people to leave anything extra they might like to leave.
