Art Journal Every Day: An Entire Art Journal

ArtJournalEveryDayLogo-150

If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, all the posts can be found here.  Please read this post first.  There is a flickr group for sharing right here.  Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day!  No need to finish anything or even like it.

In order to show off the stencils I designed, I made a pamphlet style art journal with just a few pages (so I could complete the whole book in time for CHA):

As you can see, it has space for five art journal spreads.  Just enough.  And it's a nice size: 8.5x10" when closed.  Just right.

I showed you this next spread when it was in-progress two weeks ago.  Here it is now:

I know that I have said it before, and I will say it again, time is such an important part of my art journaling process.  I definitely create pages that I'm happier with when I let the ideas marinate and build up in layers.

All in all I'm very pleased with this art journal, though I do feel that it could have used another week or two to sit with it.  So perhaps when it comes home from CHA, I'll go back in with some new ideas.  The poppy page, especially, feels unfinished.  

If you're not into diary-style art journaling every day, how about something like this book?  Just ten minutes a day, slowly working on creating a little bit of art, flipping to different pages, depending on your mood.  Hmmmm...that sounds like it might make for a great online class...maybe this Spring?  Anybody interested?

Thanks for stopping by!

ETA: I totally forgot the linky list!  Leave a link if you've done any art journaling this week!
