I cut pages (size 24x24cm), leaving the fold from the box as it is and so I created a double page, with four sides to work on. I have decided to wait till I have finished enough pages before binding the journal.
I created a cover of a bigger pizzabox, but I still have to decorate this.
I cut three pizzaboxes, creating 3 times 4 pages and applied gesso to all of the pages. One afternoon I sat down with all my acrylic paint and randomly painted the pages with my fingers, trying to use lots of colors and shapes. (Good therapy, I can tell you, when you have lots of personal issues going on!)
Inspired by Kate Crane and Dawn DeVries Sokol I started doodling and adding text and images to my pages. I used Sharpies, Prismacolor pencils, washitape, rubons, a Faber Castell Pitt pen and a white marker.
Here are the first three pages:

So far, I'm very happy with how it all turned out. Hopefully more to show soon!
