Art Journal Every Day: October 2020 Daily Pages


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.

Let's take a jump into my art journal pages from this time last year:

Every single art journal of mine has at least one or two black pages.  I simply cover the pages in black gesso before I begin.  This spread features some doodle-filled flowers.  Lots of colored pencil here!

I really love this next page and I think it's possible that I shared it when I made it last year?  But I honestly can't remember.  Maybe you remember it?

The large image on the left is one of the stencils I designed for my online class, ScanNCut: Design & Cut Amazing Stencils.

And I can never get enough of asemic writing.

This next page was an experiment and I don't like it.  But that's okay.  That's one of the great things about an art journal.  You just flip the page and keep moving.

And here's the reason for the funky page edge:

Most of this face was done with Permapaque markers.

The text and design were hand cut. 

You can watch my video on how to create a hand cut lace page in your art journal.

To make the RBG page work, I decided to leave the next spread a solid blue.

So there you have it!  Another round of art journal pages.  Feel free to ask me your art journaling questions. I'm putting together a Q&A post.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
