Art Journaling: pages of adventure

Since I was a kid I wrote in a journal. Many of my journals are unfinished because I probably got bored writing in the same notebook. I’ve also loved art since a young age too. Which puts in context my recent discovery of art journaling. It’s a subcategory of scrapbooking combining writing with visuals. I decided to work on a set of codices that explore themes. I currently have three: 1.) explores my motto and canvas disclaimer 2.) illustrates my poetry idea journal 3.) explores ideas and chronicles Canvas Poetry.

Here is what I have so far, along with the box which houses the moleskine books. My Art Journal project:

  1. What a great idea- I use a bundle of journals too- never can just do 1. Looking forward to seeing more of your art journal project!

    • Thank you Carolyn for your comment. so you have several journals your working on? Do they have themes?

      • I always think my journals will have themes, and maybe someday they will. For now I just work in lots of journals. Currently I have 7. Why 7? So I can work in one while the other dries and I don’t have to wait for it or bother with using the heat tool.

  2. I doubt I could keep so many journals but your photos gave that sense of melancholy 🙂
