If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, the concept is simple: It's a commitment to take ten minutes each day to do something in your art journal. No need to finish anything or even like it. It's about making the time to nourish your creativity every day! If you have the time to flip through your phone, you have the time to Art Journal Every Day. If you'd like to share what you make, use the hashtag #artjournaleveryday so that we can all take a peek. You can find new Art Journal Every Day posts here on the blog most Fridays. The archives go back to the first Art Journal Every Day post in 2010.
Did you notice the new header for "Art Journal Every Day?!" My first "Art Journal Every Day" post was in 2010. I figured that after a decade, it was time for a refresh. Can you believe that I've been posting about art journaling (almost) every Friday for TEN YEARS?! That's crazy! But it's no hardship. I love to share my art journal and all of my favorite techniques. Speaking of which, something I've been doing a ton of lately is glazing. And I thought it would be fun to share a video from my new online class about working with a Limited Palette, in which I demonstrate exactly how to create a glaze:
Glazing is a super easy way to rescue something without destroying all of the layers underneath. Most of the time nobody will know the magic you've done. For instance, here are some glazes in my art journal:
Glazes are a great way to shift the color story or change the focal point without totally losing your earlier work. And they can be added at any point during the process -- they help you create tons of visual depth in your layering.
