Here is something that is very new to me. Does anyone already do Art Journalling. I've been hearing about it here and there for a while and have wanted to try it but didn't know where to start. Well I believe that if things keep popping up in your life it's time to pay attention.
As I was blog hopping during OWOH one of the bloggers(I'm afraid I don't remember which one!) mentioned Teesha Moore's videos about art journals. Well I couldn't wait to give it a try. So a few nights later while watching the Olympics with the Tin Man, I just had to get out my supplies and give it a try. It was so much fun I can't wait to do some more.
Even thought I'm not too sure about my first attempt, here it is. I wasn't really sure what kind of journal I wanted to write so I just started writing without thinking too much about it.
I find when I start paying attention to the signs, things just come to me. The day after doing this journal page I was in Indigo looking at the magazines and what should I find but the Art Journal Magazine. I didn't even know there was such a thing. I read it cover to cover last night and couldn't get enough. Even though it's full of other peoples art journal methods it's really about making it your own. I'm ready to get one started I just have to decide what kind of book I'm going to use.
If you already have an art journal tell me about it.
