Any of those ring true?
Well my dears, perhaps you should try out the wonderful world of art journaling! Don't you even dare think you aren't creative or paper crafty enough, I won't listen to it. Don't give me any nonsense about having nothing to journal about either because there is inspiration everywhere.
I began journaling two years ago when an artist named Phizzychick began an altered journal along over on craftster. A small group of us got together and brainstormed themes and techniques and shared the pages we created. It was a wonderful introduction to this awesome medium and I was going strong on my book until this past fall when I began to neglect the poor thing. That ends now. I'm going to attempt to work on one spread a week, if not more and I'm hoping this post will inspire at least one of you to join me while I 'Journal in July'.
I'd like to offer you all the same sort of introduction I had. If you're already journaling, jump in and join us! Post what you're up to in your own blogs and feel free to snag the button for the blog party.
I'll be sharing information including what the heck an art journal is, techniques, supply gathering, themes and inspirations throughout the month of July.
Let me know if you'll be journaling along with me let me know, I'll put your name over on my side bar! All you need to participate is a book of some sort, art supplies, a sense of adventure and an open mind!
If there is anything specific you'd like to hear about or if there are any theme ideas you'd like to see on the big list of theme ideas that will be in the first post leave me a comment. Anything from supplies to art styles to a specific word to a more general theme is fair game, so let's brainstorm.
