Sometimes I hate scrolling through Pinterest because all I see are things that I want to make and try!! Just the other day I saw a concept I had never heard of before, art journaling. As if I have time to keep up with another journal, but of course I HAD to give it a whirl. I found out with in the first few days of trying it out, that I love it!!!
Art journaling is basically a mixed media sketch pad that you can paint, paste, and doodle whatever you want in. You can use whatever medium that pleases you, for me I love painting even though I'm no artist, and I also love making collages out of random clippings. I started by painting the cover of the journal to look galaxy like, so I'm going with it and let me tell you it is a ton of fun to feel creative. It has been a great stress reliever, and I'm sure that it will be for you too! Here's what you need to start yours:
Make this art journal yours, be creative, and relieve some stress. Don't try and emulate other people's work because than it's not really yours. Here's my first page:)
With a few paint droplets and a credit card I was able to smear this paint into a cool design. I waited until it dried so that I could put one of my favorite quotes on it.
I hope this inspires you to try some Art Journaling out for yourself
