Art Journal Every Day: Wrapping Up March 2016
June 17, 2016
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.
It has been a while since I've shared my daily pages. Do you enjoy seeing them? I enjoy sharing!
I've tried to share a few details about each page today. I hope my comments will help inspire you to create your own fabulous art journal pages!
A note about this first page: You'll notice that the dates represented are the 14th, 17th, and 19th. So, while I call this my "daily art journal," the truth is that I don't make it into the journal every single day. And that's okay.
As you can see, doodling inside basic letters is an easy way to make them look super duper fancy!
My art journals are full of leftovers. In the photo above you can see lots of little paper scraps getting used to make the heart even more decorative.
Lately I've been really into cutting holes in my art journal pages. If you're interested in making your art journal a bit more interactive, come to Whitman, MA next month for my class all about it!
This next page has a multi-layered series of inserts (another technique I'll be teaching in Whitman)...
...but let's look at some of the page details first:
Plain lettering looks just a little bit fancier when you outline out -- especially if you use a gold pen!
You can see that I used a bunch of leftover ScanNCut drawing/cutouts here. I keep my leftovers paper bits in a little bin on my desk. Then, when I'm working in my art journal they're easy to grab and use up. I like feeling like nothing is going to waste!
I continue to be eye-obsessed. And I think puns are funny. ;)
I'm a little bit in love with this glitter tape. It's super duper shiny!
It's a feedback postcard from a hotel I stayed in (the faces are printed on it). I incorporated it into my journal and then doodled around the edges.
This is the back of the second flap:
I used my Pebbles Tied stencil to create a somewhat seamless look across all the flaps.
I hope you enjoyed this peek into my journal. I'll share a few more pages next week!
Happy journaling and thanks for stopping by!
