Art Journaling

It's all good!

Evidence #3

I revamped my zine, Evidence to fit my life. Instead of filling up big sketchbooks I'm using a pocket sketchbook and rather than 20 pages you get 32. I draw things and people I see as well as from a few photos. I write a little bit and doodle here and there. For 45 you can get a copy of my personal journal.

get it here.



Issue #3 is here. I'm so excited. They keep getting better and better!

Put it on Paper Vol 1 #3

Hello, all!I am new here and coming to you from Atlanta, GA.I have been Art Journaling for a year. I have taken many, many online workshops this year to first learn what art journaling is and how it is done, then to learn specific techniques like watercolor.One class that I found very helpful was Jane Davenport's Supplies Me. This gave me a chance to learn how to use everything from pastels to watercolors to inks, and more! After this, I realized that right now I really do love doing collage…Continue

Rubber stampers?

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Material Techniques. Last reply by Maricella Cole Apr 3. 6 Replies

I love them for their recognizable immediacy. Now that I do mixed media I worship permanent ink pads because my stamped images can be worked over with wet media or stamped on top of anything reasonably smooth.Are you a collector? Or just own a few? Do you carve your own? Or use “found” objects to stamp with? Do you prefer old fashion rubber, cling or clear stamps?If you have stamps that are gathering dust maybe we can inspire you to pick them up and use them. Post your questions and feelings…Continue

Art Journaling Books

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Everything Else. Last reply by Roxane Apr 3. 4 Replies

There are a lot of art journaling books out there now and frankly I find most of them to be dreck. The big names and the industry are part of the problem. Publishing is “making it” even if you don’t have anything new to say. What art journaling books do you recommend? What do you have on the shelf and go back to again and again? Here’s two of mine...…Continue

Hi everyone!

Started by Kathee Tooher in Introductions. Last reply by Kathee Tooher Apr 3. 6 Replies

I am Kathee from Nebraska. Have recently as well spent a great deal of time on YouTube, actually looking for a new craft or interest to take on. I guess I never took time to understand 'altered books' until lately. I read quite a bit about stenciling, drifted into art journaling and doodling. Looked a lot at Amazon to see the different books and artists and what they were creating. It all looks good to help me with my color fix that I need! Just a beginner and may be that way for quite awhile…Continue

Spray Ink Reviews

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Material Techniques. Last reply by Leigh Serrie Apr 3. 16 Replies

I review 7 different companies of sprays in a number of different colors including flat and shimmer. I sure learned a great deal playing around. I’ll review them based on pigment quality and density but I make other comments as well.Dylusions: Most intense pigmentation. Color are bold and bright. Spray is heavy and solid. Flat with no glitter or metallic.Adirondack: Good pigmentation. Fairly good spray. Workhorse spray. I wish I had bought more of this than the ones below.Tattered Angels…Continue

Shy newbie

Started by Kelly B in Introductions. Last reply by Leigh Serrie Apr 3. 3 Replies

Hi everyone, nice to meet you all!My name's Kelly and I'm very new to art, but have journalled for years. I'm still learning about materials, so probably won't be posting much just yet about my art journal attempts.I'm a habitual lurker (and I will try not to do that here), but I also tend to be unreliable regarding replying. I get bed-bound for days at a time, sometimes weeks, which is why I may not respond quickly or check in so often. I wish this wasn't the case, but I'm working around it as…Continue
