My take on art journaling...


I'm taking the 52 weeks of Art Journaling class with Rachel Denbow over at A Beautiful Mess.  I've always been drawn to art journals and the like, but I have never created my own.  It's taking me a little while to find my comfort zone and get out of the "scrapping" mode.  I think most of my pages still reflect my typical style....white space, light colors, small patterns.  But creating these pages is very different than creating a layout or mini album (to me, at least).  I try not to overthink it.  I try to go with whatever idea I have when I start out the page.  I even include handwritten journaling (gasp...that's big for me!).

The lessons and prompts with the class are great inspiration and I just love looking at the artistic approach many of them take.  Sometimes I'm inspired by the lesson, sometimes the prompt, and sometimes an idea pops in my head while I'm out and about.  Or right before I go to bed.  (Most of my ideas seem to settle in right before I fall asleep.  Anyone else do this?)

Today, I wanted to share the first few pages of my art journal.  And remember...this is my take on "art".  I want to include more paint and make a bigger mess in this album, but finding my comfort zone is taking time.  For now, you will see lots of white space and pops of color...  Big surprise, huh?









Do you have an art journal or some type of book that is just all yours?  A place to experiment and create without boundaries?
