Art Journaling

It's all good!

Please Take my Research Survey

Hey everyone, For those of you who took a few minutes to fill out my survey I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. Nearly 190 of you took it which gives me some really clear, valuable research on how people feel about online therapy, and online art therapy in particular.  You are all awesome! thanks So so much!

The futility of junk journal definitions

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Everything Else Jun 4. 0 Replies

Art is this very general term about creative action. Art journals are this very general book-like surface where you make art. I get giggles about junk journals. Some are these obsessively designed, perfect, thematic confections using forgotten supplies. Some are tear it up and slap in down from the recycle bin..Really, who can say what isn’t and isn’t art without rigid rules that dictate everything from supplies to techniques to subject matter and more. Just look at the Impressionists, they had…Continue

Greetings from a new member!

Started by Deborah Long in Introductions. Last reply by Kathy Mar 20. 1 Reply

I'm a hobby artist and have always loved paper and all types of coloring media but I'm still fairly new to art journaling. I'm so thrilled to find and join this group. It's like I wandered into this fabulous place that is exactly what I was was looking for but didn't know actually existed. I've been cruising the gallery this morning and love all the beautiful artwork. So inspiring! I'll be sharing some of my work soon. I'm so happy to be a member here!Continue

Hi Ya'll!

Hi... My name is Elizabeth, but my friends call me Lizzie. I don't know if I would call myself an artist but I've been practicing art all my life. Somewhere along the way I lost my inspiration and quit for a while. And about six months ago, after my separation, I saw my my daughter's watercolor pencils on the table and began to doodle and I haven't stopped since! Now its like I'm hungry for anything creative. I have especially fallen in love with art journaling and am eager to learn everything…Continue

Xyron Sticker Machine

Started by Kathy in Everything Else. Last reply by Kathy Jan 6. 2 Replies

I have a very OLD Xyron sticker machine - Xyron 500 to be exact.  I hadn't used it in ages until the last year or so, and had a spare cartridge hanging around.  Now it is used up, and I am not sure if the newer cartridges would fit the old machine.  Just wondering if anyone would know.  Thanks!Continue

Love to Art Journal

Started by Sonja Healey in Introductions. Last reply by Sonja Healey Dec 23, 2015. 2 Replies

Hi I'm Sonja and I am addicted to art. I love all materials, all media (as long as it's non-toxic!). I have several art journals in the works and I can't wait to share some of the pages with all of you. My style is very layered, although I am still learning how to add dimension to my pages (can't wait to hear your suggestions!). I love cool colors like blues, aquas, turquiose, purple, jade. I love surreal imagery and am starting to use unusual photographs from magazines in my art journals. I…Continue

Have I Found My Tribe?!

Started by Sherri Chinnock in Introductions. Last reply by Shanta Devi Dec 20, 2015. 5 Replies

Hello,       My name is Sherri.  I am so grateful to be in the company of others who seek to express themselves in this way.  As an artist I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself to make great art.  In the past  I have  actually sabotaged myself  because I felt like I couldn't begin a project unless its was philosophically deep or meaningful, and above all  it had to be perfect.  It wasn't until I stumbled across a book called "Brave Intuitive Painting'" by Flora Bowley that I realized  Art…Continue

Self-proclaimed art journaling superstars

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Everything Else. Last reply by Kathy Nov 24, 2015. 13 Replies

Superstars. I'm serious. It is on a joint ad for a class series. THIS is why I am so frustrated. YouTube votes, blog hits, and self-marketing making the artist. Not skill or talent. DVDs, product endorsements, books, their very own supplies that are actually rebranded stuff that is already available on the market sold for more. Jaded? Oh yeah. Too bad my wooden shoe doesn't work on the internet.Continue

Montana Acrylic Paint Markers/Refillables

Started by Ann Thorsen in Pens, Markers, Pencils. Last reply by Ann Thorsen Nov 8, 2015. 7 Replies

Are you using Montana Acrylic Paint Markers, prefilled or empty? How long have you been using them? Have you found any issues or limitations with the prefilled ones? Do they last well? Have you filled the empty ones with other paints or random substances . . . if so, what result? Other thoughts?I just bought my first one (black, extra fine) and started playing with it - seems promising for writing on acrylic media. I also bought an empty one, with plans to fill it with Golden high flow acrylic…Continue
