I love this journal and the size is perfect for what I want to use it for. I also decided to make another one just like it and put in my Etsy shop. So I made this journal to use as a sketchbook, but I want to use it for more than just sketching. I want to also add color and use it with supplies like color pencils, Bombay ink, watercolor, etc. And I wanted to do more than just a sketch or drawing of an animal or person. So I searched through my stash and decided to combine several pictures into a layout. For this first layout I choose a picture of a parrot, a coconut, a flower and a watch. I sketched these on my page in the configuration that I wanted. I then used watercolors to add color to the page and used Bombay ink, Posca pens, ink pens and color pencils to add details to my page. Here is a picture of the art journal page I created.
And here is the video showing how I created this page.
I really enjoyed creating this page and like the way it turned out. And I really love this new sketchbook and can't wait to create more layouts in this book. While going through my stash, I was also able to put together a number of other groupings of pictures for future layouts as well.

Until next time, Happy Creating.
