a random page # 4

I’ve been art journaling since 2013, and now I think I’ve finally figured out my style for art journal pages. Here are a few things that I love to have on my pages:

  • Color – I prefer to use acrylic than water-color medium
  • Images – Mostly from magazines, but children books are a great asset as well
  • Words – A must!
  • Messy – Yes to freedom!

It’s funny, I always try to change things but always go back to what makes comfortable and my creativity can fly free.

And you? How is your creativity doing?

  1. I have my regular journal that I write in every week, but I also have an art journal with doodles, photos, and drawings with quotes and ideas that have always meant a lot to me 🙂 I must admit the art journal has been a bit neglected lately – I should get back to it soon!

  2. Ever since I first visited your blog so many years ago, I’ve vowed to give art journalling a go – but haven’t because I’m a ‘gunna’ person. 2019 is my ‘make it happen’ year. From one of your earlier posts, which I visited today, I followed a link to Right Brain Planner. There, I was struck by the warning that I shouldn’t set myself up to fail (for another year) just because I didn’t begin on January 1st. Day One can be any day. What a wonderful piece of advice.

    Thanks dear Elizabeth, today is my Day One.You are truly my inspiration. Thank you.

    1. Dear Lois, you should give it a try! It’s a great activity and really make things clear in the mind. The best thing to break a clean page it to add the date to the top of it, so it’s not clean anymore! You can add an image from a magazine, something that you find beautiful or has called your attention, and then write only words that come to your mind, maybe a list of things to do that day or that you had done. Hope you give it a try!
