Q: How can I find all the previous Art Journal Every Day posts?
A: Find them all listed by category and linked here.
Q: What is Art Journal Every Day?
A: Art Journal Every Day is weekly feature on this blog. It appears every Friday. The Art Journal Every Day (AJED) posts are always art journal focused, though not necessarily focused on daily art journaling.
Q: What does the title "Art Journal Every Day" mean?
A: I do my best to art journal every day. I encourage other people to do so -- just for ten minutes a day. The point is to be creative and steal a little bit of time just-for-you every single day.
Q: How can I participate?
A: Lots of different ways!
- There is a free flickr group here for sharing photos of your pages. (Tutorial on how to use flickr is here.) The flickr group is simply an easy way to share your pages with others.
- Each week I post a linky list for people to leave a link to their blog or flickr page where work they've done this week is posted.
- You can play along privately. There is no need to share!

Q: What if I've never art journaled before?
A: Jump right in! The water is fine! There is no "right" way to do anything having to do with art journaling. If you want some step-by-step information, there's lots of it in the Art Journal Every Day archive. You can also take my online class "30 Days in Your Journal" which takes you step-by-step through the art journaling process in ten-minutes a day.
Q: What supplies do I need to get started?
A: You don't "need" anything. A notebook, a pen, and something to color with is a great beginning. If you want more, this is a list of my favorite supplies:
