Video Tour: B-Notebook

Use old drawings and doodle cutouts to decorate any notebook.

Once in a very blue moon, I’ll go ahead and buy decorative notebooks, sketchbooks or writing journals.

You know, the ones for sale at Target, Walmart, or other retailers.

But most of the time, I much prefer to decorate and personalize second-hand notebooks (or convert old books into sketchbooks, but this is a post for another day).

And when I do, an easy go-to design element that adds instant appeal is an old drawing or doodle.

That’s what my video demonstrates.

The video on this post tours you through a recent notebook transformation I did as an inspirational gift for my 17-year old son, Brandon.

The way I stylized the B-shaped notebook was done using a mix of media, including art markers, collage, and paper cutouts.

The centerpiece of my notebook decoration are my son’s alien and space doodles, which he had originally drawn when he was 7-years old.

As a notable side note, the B-shaped notebook was a second-hand find from a local thrift store. This makes this decoration project sustainable-friendly for its repurposing of existing materials in an artistic way.

Have you decorated your own journal or sketchbook?

If you have, I hope you enjoyed your decorating process as much I enjoyed mine!

And if you haven’t, then I hope my video sharing inspires you to try it. But before you rush off to decorate your journal or sketchbook in your own unique way, please be advised you’ll get seriously hooked xo BIG TIME. Trust me.

More videos and inspirational content to come ❤️🙏
