Journal Cover Re-Do


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.

Over the years I've made junque journals faster than I can use them.  As a result, I sometimes end up grabbing a journal to use that is many many years old.  This weekend, I grabbed this journal...

...and decided that the face on the cover didn't suit me anymore.  So, I gave it a makeover.  You can watch the makeover in this short (2 minute) video:

Monthly members have access to the real-time version of this video in the online classroom.  If you'd like to learn how I approach drawing a face, I have an online class all about it HERE.

And here is the journal cover after the "face lift."

To me, art is a living thing.  It can always be changed and adjusted.  Just because it was once done doesn't mean that it's forever done.  What do you think?  Do you ever go back and change your art?

Thanks for stopping by!
