Keeping an art journal plus Book Giveaway Part II

Returning to the 'keeping an art journal theme' of a recent blog post and this time I'm sharing the ideas of Norwegian knitwear designers and authors, Arne & Carlos of how to create an Art Journal, Book Bound keepsake/diary, Idea Book - Call it what you will!

Crafting circles will know of Arne and Carlos because of their established social media presence and their published craft titles of course. The pair arrived on my radar when they opened the Knitting and Stitching show of Oct 2015 in London

So I'll let the guys tell you in their own unscripted video style about how to make an Art Journal/Idea Book 

And published in May this year, a book, featuring the art journal  ideas of Arne and Carlos called  'Make your own IdeaBook with Arne & Carlos' (see above)

Short review - also published on Amazon

Okay, these kinds of books can really only perform as a guide rather than be comprehensive in the detailing, but it does contain step-by-step information of how to make your own handmade book, how to sew in pages; how to bind the book and how to create a cover. 
The art editing work of the book is exceptional. It is the presentation and beautiful colour photography, (of which there are over 50 images and many full page), that does the job of illustrating the techniques adopted by Arne and Carlos in their handmade book making process. A large, folded sheet of useful templates is inserted in the back. Take a look at the pages inside
