VIDEO ART TUTORIAL | Lets Make A Reversible Mini Art Journal!

Hello Oddballs!

Are you ready to have some fun??!  This Reversible Mini Art Journal was super fun and easy to make and I must say......turned out sooooooo cute,  I am super excited about it;  and hope you are as excited as I am....

I used 2 brand new stamps that I created for a creepy cute take on Easter, they were  released in the Oddball Etsy Shop yesterday,  but you could use any stamp(s) you want for your journal using the template in my last tutorial to design your front and back covers in photoshop before you print & paint.  

Simply download the zip file containing the template (includes a free digi stamp) if you haven't yet downloaded it.  The template is a .psd file which is a photoshop file and it contains layers.   The layers are labeled so you know where to place your digital image and then which layer to delete the borders before you print, When you place your stamp image you will want to keep it inside the border as anything printed outside of the border will be folded over the cardboard and covered up with glue and the inside pages.  Once you are happy with your front and back covers, save and print to size 6" x 6" art paper.


  • 2 pcs of 6" x 6" craft or art paper
  • 2 pcs of 4.5" x 4.5" cardboard or chipboard
  • 1(+) pcs of long craft or art paper 4" x  (a # divisible by 4)  
  • ( I used 2 pcs of mixed media paper 4" x 24" and connected them can connect as many pcs as you want together to make it as long as you desire as long as the total length is divisble by 4)
  • Mod Podge or strong craft glue
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • craft knife or scissors something to cut the cardboard and paper
  • watercolor paints and brushes or any medium of your choosing
  • digital stamps (optional) 

The 2 images used in this tutorial are...


I hope you have fun making your own Reversible Mini Art Journal and I can't wait to see it if you do!!!  
I would love you to share your makes in the Oddball Art Stamps FB Group and if you're chosen by as our monthly Facebook Challenge winner and you've created a project using 1 of the techniques from a previous month you will get to pick an extra digi stamp! So that means you will get to choose 4 stamps instead of 3!!!!!   (This Tutorial is a March Technique even though the blog isn't getting posted til April 1.)

Did you catch DT Pennies Technique from last week?
