Collage Workshop?

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Material Techniques. Last reply by Susan Jane Ankeney 11 hours ago. 5 Replies

I was kind of thinking about offering a free informal collage group in the workshops area. I've been doing collage for a long time, taken a few classes, read about and looked at a lot of artwork. I don't like recipe classes or the recipe style books. But I can cover things like different kinds of paper, building a stash, adhesives, etc. Collage is great because it is so accessible without high cost and gives almost immediate results. Since more and more art journals are using collage I thought…Continue

Stickers, Stamps, Printouts, and Other Words

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Words. Last reply by Susan Jane Ankeney yesterday. 14 Replies

There is very much a place for handwritten words in art journals.  Handwriting can actually be very codified art if its calligraphy! But handwriting is not always an option or even desired. Neat, precise writing is fine if you have the time and skill. The rest of us use the computer and make a print out. Fortunately there are lots of other options as well. The scrapbooking world got into stickers in a serious way. Zillions of fonts, colors, patterns, and sizes. You can get puffy black glossy,…Continue

Cutting Tools / One Opinion

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Everything Else. Last reply by Ann Thorsen yesterday. 11 Replies

This is my personal opinion on cutting tools. There are other options. I’ve tried quite a few over the years and this is what I settled on. Your needs are certain to vary but this could be a place to start if you are a beginner or frustrated with what you are using.The primary cutting tool is scissors. The one rule is the more you spend the better the cutting experience. Those 99¢ scissors may cut well for a time but then they go bad to worse overnight and can’t be sharpened. I’m a Fiskars fan…Continue

A 40% coupon does not apply here.No cost:Papers and other materials from the recycle bin (or before they hit the trashcanMagazines donated by friends and familyCommon household items like file folders, staplers, white glue, foilWalking around…Continue

Art Groups, Clubs, Gatherings

Started by Ann Thorsen in Everything Else. Last reply by Lisa Armato on Tuesday. 9 Replies

Do you belong to or attend any kind of real-life art-journaling-related art group, gathering or club? If so, please tell us about it: How it formed,  how often you meet, what sort of things you do, and so on. What role does it play in your life? Lisa Armato asked me about my RL group on another thread, so I thought I'd post this discussion to see if anyone else wanted to chat.Continue

How To Keep My Journal Private

Started by CrystalDreamer59 in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by Susan Jane Ankeney Mar 13. 20 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

Cheap Art Supplies

I already have a good collection of art supplies and other crafty stuff going but I worry about the cost. This is another thing that concerns me about art journaling. What are some good quality, but cheap art supplies that would be okay for art journaling or making art in general. Continue

A year in art journaling...

Started by Marit Barentsen in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by Lisa Armato Mar 9. 5 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

Kind of New to Journaling

Started by Carmen Lajam in Introductions. Last reply by Carmen Lajam Feb 23. 3 Replies

I started Art journaling last summer because i started taking a class in school. I always use to sketch on random paper and loved working with clay and other media since i was little. Although i love art i always lack confidence in my own. I can point out a million mistakes in one piece even when it looks great. I like to journal because it's personal and it makes me feel more comfortable with my work in general. I'm hoping to learn many things and i'm eager to be on this website.Continue
