It's all good!
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.
Issue #3 is here. I'm so excited. They keep getting better and better!
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
Hi, everyone, I am very happy to be included in your group. I am Canadian.I have been journalling my whole life and many years ago used crayons etc for my "art" effects, :-)!For the past year I have had health issues and found my journals very dark. I want to end this and am looking forward to being inspired by you all. I want to learn and experiment and grow.I will love colour again, be positive, and laugh!Thanks for listening.Continue
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
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

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
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
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
i just ran across the website and videos for using pan pastels on another website. anyone use them and if so, what are the pros and cons for using them in your art journal?Continue
