A few weeks ago, I got the idea into my head that I should try art journaling. I vowed to art journal every day in February. Just 15 minutes every day. Now this might not seem like such a big thing, but it’s a new venture for me, and a little bit scary at that because I like things to be just-so. And art journaling is not. It’s messy, and free form and to be honest, a little bit out of my comfort zone. But this year I’m trying new things, especially things that scare me, so Art Journaling in February it is!
I’ve been gathering supplies – a book, gesso, paint, spray ink. Even bought myself some oil pastels at Staples (as suggested by the wonderfully talented art journaler, Dina Wakely). I’ve collected links of techniques from around the web to help me out and pinned them to my art journaling board on Pinterest.
I suspect that I’ll be getting a lot of ideas/inspiration/direction from the fabulous and funny Julie Fei-Fan Balzer who has a whole section of her website dedicated to art journaling every day:
And so the adventure begins. I’m blocking off my 15+ minutes to art journal today. Join me! Please leave me a comment if you find art journaling links that you’d like to share!
