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
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 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

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
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!!!" Until I realized that millions of other people would have a cookie cutter copy of the SAME journal. Then something inside me went..."Oh."Give me your take on the new Smashbook (company produced journal).Thanks -AliContinue
There are always new pens and markers coming out on the market, so maybe it's time to revisit this topic. What are you loving now? Please include a link or screen capture -- artists are visual people after all.Continue
Hi Friends!I'm new to art journaling (not to art but to art journaling!) and I've noticed that in alot of the youtube videos people add tags to their pages. I watched one video about how to make a book that was full of pockets for tags. It was super cute and kind of cool but I was left wondering what for?What do you use tags for?Do you journal on the tags? Make mini paintings? Why do you make tags?Any thoughts or links to finished tags would be super helpful. So far I've only seen blank…Continue
Hi, I'm CrystalDreamer59 and I'm rather new to art journaling. I got interested in art journaling because I am rather emotional and since I like art I was told that art journaling would be good for me. However I lack confidence in myself and my artistic abilities because I'm always comparing myself to other artist instead of just letting myself be free. I came here hoping to somehow be able to build confidence in my artistic abilities. Continue
Hello fellow artists, I am new to art journaling and I'm completely overwhelmed by this new hobby. I've never been one to keep a diary, but I absolutely love quotes and am constantly doodling them down...so I'm hoping this new hobby will combine my artistic abilities and love of quotes. I have a dilemma in choosing a journal. I've been searching online and haven't found "the one" just yet. I would like to hear what peoples favorite brands, styles, etc. are. Do you make your own from heavy…Continue
