If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here. All of the previous posts can be found archived here. Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day! No need to finish anything or even like it. If you've done some art journaling this week, use the hashtag #artjournaleveryday so that we can all take a peek. Even if you're not on social media, you can see everything (from twitter, pinterest, instagram, and facebook) that uses that hashtag here.
Thank you so much for sharing info on how you art journal! I thought I'd cut and paste a few of the comments from last week's Art Journal Every Day post. I asked you to tell me whether you journal on loose pages or in a book and whether you do a lot of writing on your pages. Here's what a few of you said (lots of great comments, so take a peek back and read them all if you get a chance):
And now, without any further ado, here are the rest of my single pages created with my new Crafter's Workshop stencils!
I find that working on single pages both offers me freedom -- no rules or constraints as far as size, orientation, technique -- and makes me feel uptight -- it feels like it should be "ART" instead of play. Similarly, there's great privacy in working without a lot of journaling, but I find that I miss the beauty of dense written text. I suppose that positive/negative thing is the reason that I have to keep creating all kinds of art journal pages. I never want to get too comfortable. I always try to push myself to create differently and stretch into uncomfortable places!
How about you? Do you prefer to do what is familiar? Or do you like to reach for something new?
Thanks for stopping by!
