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.
Today I am sharing some more pages from September 2018. I really love this series of art journal pages. They feel like the best version of my kind of art journaling. Looking at them made me want to think about what I was doing at the time. How did I feel? How were the things going on in my life influencing these pages? Reading the journaling, it seems like I was in a really happy and excited place. Perhaps that's the key to my artistic success?
I almost always looooove the black pages in my journal. It makes me think that I should do more of them!
I love this large doodle. My white pen of choice is the poster paint Sharpie, which they no longer make. So, I've been using Sakura's gelly roll and it does a great job. But, it's not permanent. So you can wash it away with the swipe of a wet paintbrush.
And here is the other side of that cut page:
You can see that this page is a bit shorter than the others around it. I printed the face directly into my art journal using a gelatin plate. Then I trimmed the white parts of the page off (it had borders because my gelatin plate was smaller than the original page).
Hope you enjoyed this peek into my art journal! Thanks for stopping by!
