Art Journaling Intro


I used to journal all of the time as a kid ... log my day and tape in what I found as a souvenir to mark my experiences. I was dedicated, writing about my school work, amphibian habitats and field trips :)

I recently began co-hosting a women's small group - She Reads Truth - Art Journaling and have reconnected to journaling creatively. I had lost touch with getting my ideas and musings on paper. Something about life getting in the way. But I have to say, it has been freeing. Mixed media is my favorite -- I can get as crazy and jazz it up just as I'd like!

I thought it would be fun to share some of my journals as we continue this summer. Here is my page from last night!
I started with the idea of a few of my favorite things and wanted to get back to the core of what I love --things that get overlooked or pushed out of focus...and this was the result! A mix of words [your turn to play I Spy on the image above!], song lyrics [such beautiful poetry] and prayerful questions --infused with cardstock, tissue paper, pen ink, paints and washi tape. 

Have you ever created an art journal page? What inspires you?

To view lovely pages from our small group in particular we've been tagging a few photos each week as #srtartjournal on Instagram

  3. Hi! I love this concept of journaling! I actually just started what I call "writer's notebook" (same concept, different name) It's a great way to express and be creative. Thanks for sharing and glad to be your newest follower.

    1. Wow Rosy-- that's so cool! I love the sound of your writer's notebook -- have you ever shared any on your blog? It would be fun to do an artistic expression sort of link-up! Let me know what you think :) I just sent you my email on your blog! I'm excited to connect with you!
