It's all good!
My new personal project is my zine "Evidence." Basically I keep a journal using only black and gray inks. In it I sketch, doodle and write about the stuff going on in my life and head. I then scan it and turn it into a PDF and load it up to Etsy. This issue is twenty five fat 8.5x11 inch pages of my journaling. You can print them and make copies so long as you give me credit.
Head on over to Etsy and check it out.
Issue #3 is here. I'm so excited. They keep getting better and better!
There's a whole commercial thing with crafting, art journaling, scrapbooking, and mixed media (in case you hadn't noticed ;) Nevertheless people do follow trends even if they are purely personal ones.What do you think about commercial trends going on right now? Anything interesting to you? Anything you want to try? Anything you loathe?If the commercial part is not your thing what are your own trends? Certain colors or materials? Subject matter? A technique? Something else?I've used scrapbook…Continue
Thanks for accepting me. I'm new to art journaling. I have started to paint my journals pages with PVA and for some reason can't put colour on them. I'm not in a haste to do anything but with time something might happen. Thanks again.MerciaContinue
Hi Everyone,I was wondering if anyone has tried the new line of Golden High Flow acrylics. What do you think of them, especially how they compare to the Golden fluid acrylics and even how they might compare to any of the acrylic inks out there. I have used the fluid acrylics, but haven't tried high flow yet. Thanks! KathyContinue
Hi, my name is Katy. Thanks for adding me, this looks like a great community and I'm hoping it will get me into art journaling even more than I have been.I recently started an art journal, but sometimes I have trouble staying motivated and keeping up on it. I've loved creating art for as long as I can remember. I mostly draw, usually nothing too realistic, though I am hoping to improve on those skills in the near future. I also like to read, write, and play video games in my free time.Nice to…Continue

Still completely new to Art Journals but I am so looking forward to learning how to do it. I would love to express my thoughts and ideas in an artistic way. Would love to buddy-up with another newbie, to share ideas and the whole experience. :)Continue
Hi Everyone,After trying many ways of storing and organizing paint, I finally came up with something that seems to work. I tried plastic containers, plastic carts with drawers and other assorted way, only to find it cumbersome to find what I am looking for, or forgetting what paints/colors I have. I then got the notion that I need some kind of container that has compartments where I can stand the paints up, organize by color, and have a visual sense of what I have. But the compartments…Continue

I am interested in what people write in their art journals and how other people 'use' the writing in their art journals. Do you put lists and ideas in? Do you find that you come back to them? Do you reread your journal? Is it a place for catharsis? regular diary writing?Besides my art journal, I have a book of morning pages. I have an art diary in my studio for ideas about my art. I have an exercise book for teaching ideas and one for journaling ideas. I would love to have all this stuff in my…Continue
