Art Journaling For Emotional Release

Started by CrystalDreamer59 in Everything Else. Last reply by Susan Jane Ankeney on Wednesday. 15 Replies

I haven't art journaled in a while and I want to get back into doing art journaling as a form of releasing emotions. Only problem is I'm really bad at expressing my emotions even through art. Anyone have any ideas for art journal prompts for emotional release. Continue

Rubber stampers?

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Material Techniques. Last reply by Susan Jane Ankeney on Wednesday. 27 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 Adhesives

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Everything Else. Last reply by Susan Jane Ankeney on Wednesday. 13 Replies

I’m going to cover some collage and mixed media adhesives in this thread. I mostly do collage but I do stick all sorts of things down including plastics and fabric, even twigs and tea bags. Using the right adhesive for the job is key to getting good stick-tion and long term results. I’ll start with my favorite paper adhesives first.-------------------------Tape runners changed how I do found paper collage (my primary medium). Wet glue is so messy and often bleeds through papers -- resulting in…Continue

A year in art journaling...

Started by Marit Barentsen in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by Marit Barentsen Jan 12. 2 Replies

Hi girls (boys?) - I noticed I overflow the art gallery lately by uploading the complete 'Chronicles' pages from the last year... I'm sorry if it made you feel overwhelmed but it's done now, all weekly pages of 2014 are now in the gallery and I hope I don't need to upload that much in one time again this year but put it here once I made something...There's not much going on though, I don't see people uploading new art. What are you all up to? I would love to see YOUR pages too!!!Continue

Hello everyone! So glad that I found this website ^_^I'm Sherlyn from Indonesia, I'm 17 years old. I just got into journalling 2 years ago thanks to an Instagram account (I forgot.. but I think she's from Japan). I want to be dedicated but school life is hectic XD I journal once in a while or when something grand happen, or just paste every scrap like bills/candy wrappers/etc onto my page (wow i'm so artsy)But to be honest, I just can't make 'messy' and expressive journal pages just like what I…Continue

I'm back, after a crappy year

Started by Marit Barentsen in Introductions. Last reply by Marit Barentsen Dec 23, 2014. 6 Replies

Hello sweet fellow art journalers! I haven't been around here for a loooong time... I just looked, and the last photo I updated in my albums dates March.. I missed out a lot - and not only in this group... but everywhere on the Internet! I had a bumpy, crappy year with lots of difficulties which I won't share (too long a story) but let me tell this:  life scared the hell out of me and I had to deal with quite some changes and emotions. The biggest thing is, that my beloved and I moved to…Continue

How To Keep My Journal Private

Started by CrystalDreamer59 in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by CrystalDreamer59 Nov 26, 2014. 11 Replies

I'm seriously thinking about getting more into art journaling, but I have such a big fear that someone will come searching my house and find my journal and look at it. This is one of the main reasons why I haven't journaled in such a long time. I have thought about journaling on my computer so I can protect it with a password, but journaling on the computer just doesn't seem as creative as journaling in a book. So how can I keep my journal safe from other people looking inside it. Continue

Started by Ali in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by Dixie Lee Sep 11, 2014. 62 Replies

Hi Everyone!I guess I'm behind times but I just saw a Smashbook display in Michael's.At first I thought, "Awesome!!  This is how I WANT my art journal pages to look!!!"
