I've been creative in my art journal lately. Sometimes I take brief sabbaticals, as I get caught up in other things, but I always return to my art journal, a place of comforting memories and fun tidbits. Here are two spreads I've done lately:
It was also interesting today that I took a trip to a local Michael's Arts and Crafts store, and I discovered that they have so much now for the art journal! From at least three different brands of washi tape to stickers made of actual burlap to a whole rack of all different kinds of markers/pens for journaling. I'd had a few dollars left from a gift card I'd received for Christmas, but if I'd had more money, I am certain there is much I would have gotten. :) There I go with the smile again!
I do have to state, however, for the record... I think Prismacolor colored pencils are fantastic, but they are TOO expensive!!!
So, it's a brand new year... who wants to start an art journal???
