Art Journaling

Hello Internet!! I have already told you about something awesome called bullet journaling. Well, I got something new for you in store. Art journaling, a project I wanted to start a long time ago, but never ended up doing.

There is one goal that I want too achieve in 2017. That is to let my creativity shine more! So this is a good time to try out art journaling.

An art journal is a journal in which you combine art and words to express yourself.

This art form is practised by some great people throughout history. For example: Vincent van Gogh , Davinci and Picasso had a form of art journal we know today!

An art journal is a diary with instead of words, drawings and other stuff lying around. You can put festival tickets in your journal or some beautiful beads, mothersday presents from your kids and even some feathers. Let your imagination lead the way!!

To begin an art journal you will need a sketchbook or a journal. What kind and how big ,is something you will need to decide for yourself.

The second thing is, that there are no rules when it comes to an art journal. You can make it your diary , put you emotions in , dreams , or just for important things you want to remember for later and maybe just to keep track on new techniques or ideas.

Because I haven’t started making an art journal, I still need to think what I want to do with it. I guess I want to make it more of an inspirational quotes, memories and trying out new techniques art journal.

I am very curious if it’s going to be a staying thing like bullet journaling. But you never know, if you didn’t try it!

See you next time……..
