Art Journaling

It's all good!

Please Take my Research Survey

Hi Everyone,

As many of you know, I’m in graduate school obtaining a Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in art therapy. Part of this process is conducting a thesis study. I have decided to explore the prospect of online art therapy. While doing my research, I thought of this site and all of its members as a way to dip my toes in the waters and get an idea of what some people think of online art therapy.  So, I’d like to know a little bit about what you think about online art therapy, and online therapy in general.

The purpose of this study is to explore opinions and attitudes towards online art therapy.

You are invited to take a brief survey about your opinion of the possibility of online art therapy.

If you agree to participate, I would ask you to complete an online questionnaire. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete the questionnaire.

To be eligible for the study, you must be:

1) At least 18 years old

2) A member of ArtJournaling.ning.com

You will not receive compensation for your participation.

For more information please contact Leslie Herger lherger@lesley.edu

To participate in the study, please access letter of informed consent by clicking on this link:

Thanks you in advance,

Leslie Herger aka ComfortableShoes

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

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

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

The biggest paper source of all time is drying up!

Started by Susan Jane Ankeney in Journals and all Things Paper. Last reply by Lynn E Ruiz Nov 2, 2015. 3 Replies

I kid you not! The biggest paper source off all time is drying up (sniff really sniff truthfully sniff). As a collage artist I was collecting scrapbook paper from the very beginning! I’ve hoarded paper with swimming pool water, astro turf, velveteen paper, foil brocade, tree bark, fish tank gravel… omg. I have six different grass papers! I’ve got this deep brooding vampire goth red background that I love. Don’t wait! Raid your local craft store (mine went from four aisles down to half an…Continue

HAD to share this...

Started by Lynn E Ruiz in Words. Last reply by Lynn E Ruiz Oct 13, 2015. 6 Replies

Each of us has been given gifts and talents. Our combinations of gifts are unique to us. Though we may look at others and think we may never be “as good as” they are in something, or that “we’re better than” someone else in something else, those comparisons really do not have anyone’s best interest in mind. It’s kind of like saying, “That grand piano will never drive as fast as that sports car.” Well of course it won’t, it wasn’t designed for driving. It was designed to play beautiful music.…Continue
