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.
Reading my journaling on these pages I was reminded of a world pre-lockdown. I was busy doing crazy things like, "taking the baby to the museum." It actually gave me great hope for post-Covid world where he can actually see and touch other little children. Some day!

The sort of plus sign shapes on this page were made using a thermofax screen.
The "Layered Bloom" stencil with it's layered flower is an oldie but goodie stencil. You may remember this video where I showed how the layering works:
And the second stencil is called "Old Circle Grate" and is from my most recent stencil release:
I also used both a black and a white grease pencil. One of my current favorite art tools!
