I'm back, after a crappy year

Started by Marit Barentsen in Introductions. Last reply by Vicki Walters 20 hours ago. 4 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

Art Journaling For Emotional Release

Started by CrystalDreamer59 in Everything Else. Last reply by ComfortableShoes Nov 30. 13 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

How To Keep My Journal Private

Started by CrystalDreamer59 in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by CrystalDreamer59 Nov 26. 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

Art Journaling Adhesives

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Everything Else. Last reply by Susan Jane Ankeney Nov 26. 12 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

Hello everyone! So glad that I found this website ^_^I'm Sherlyn from Indonesia, I'm 17 years old.

Smash Books? Art Journals? Your thoughts.

Started by Ali in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by Dixie Lee Sep 11. 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!!!"

What are tags for???

Started by Compassion Priestess in Everything Else. Last reply by Susan Jane Ankeney Aug 31. 11 Replies

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

My introduction

Started by CrystalDreamer59 in Introductions. Last reply by Peggy Bainbridge Aug 27. 18 Replies

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
