ART JOURNAL - Judy's Journal Journey 6.30.22

A R T    J O U R N A L

 
Your journal is the perfect avenue to vent. It's always good to have a safe dumping ground, a place to get rid of the poisons, the concerns, and the things causing stress in your life. With that being said, the journal is also the perfect place to document all the things you are grateful for.

ART JOURNAL - Judy's Journal Journey 6.29.22

 

A R T    J O U R N A L
Your journal is your safe private space. You are not required to share it with anyone. As long as it is authentic, you can draw or write anything you want. It is not your responsibility to draw the truth or draw what people expect to see.

ART JOURNAL - Judy's Journal Journey 6.27.22

A R T    J O U R N A L

 Sometimes I use drama to make my message stand out - big letters and bright colors . Your message can be 
simple, quick, and powerful.

Not all journal pages have to have a purpose. Some can just be about play and fun.
 Their only purpose is to fill the page and fill my time.

ART JOURNAL - Judy's Journal Journey 6.25.22

A R T    J O U R N A L
When I acquire a new journal book, the first thing I do is "prepare" the pages by eliminating the "blank white page". I add splashes of color and runs and drips with watercolor paint. Sometimes I glue some collage paper for a background. By preparing the pages I am starting the journal at the same time. So when I finally sit down to "journal", it won't be the first time I've been with the book. We have already become familiar with each other.

ART JOURNAL - Judy's Journal Journey 6.24.22

A R T    J O U R N A L

 Journaling can be done anywhere and everywhere - the world is your studio. If you can't take the journal book with you, you can still make notes, sketch on scrap paper, take a photo or collect interesting ephemera - and bring it back to the journal and add it to your book.

 You don't have to be able to draw, or draw as well as you think you should. If you can use a pair of scissors and a glue stick, find pictures on the internet or in a magazine and decorate your pages. Even better, use your own photos. Your journal is your personal space. It should be a happy place and it should tell your story.

ART JOURNAL - Judy's Journal Journey 6.21.22

A R T    J O U R N A L

 Sometimes the journal page inspires me and the image become a precursor for my paintings. And sometimes I have an idea for a painting and work it out on the journal page.

ART JOURNAL - Judy's Journal Journey 6.20.22

A R T    J O U R N A L
I use sketchbooks with ting binding for my art journals. I use the minimal amount of supplies. My writing is nothing that will ever be published. Most of it should probably never be read. My art is mostly drawing and doodling and gluing collect collage ephemera. Meaningful only to me. After all - it is my journal!

ART JOURNAL - Judy's Journal Journey 6.19.22

A R T    J O U R N A L
I know I said "no rules" and that sounds like a rule. Mistakes. Error in judgement. Poor art. Inferior materials. These are my building blocks. The foundation of my art. I learn from the mistakes I make in my journal. I allow myself the freedom to experiment and try new things and make mistakes.

ART JOURNAL - Judy's Journal Journey 6.18.22

A R T    J O U R N A L
Your journal can be simple with a few written words, like a diary with illustrations. As simple as a few magazine clippings and doodles made with magic markers. Or it can be elaborate and ambitious with layers of paint and collage and stamps with calligraphy poetry. Either style is fine as long as it is authentic, as long as it is truly yours.

Whatever you want to do in your journal you should do. Maybe you don't like collage and glue. Maybe you are more comfortable with watercolors or magic markers. As long as you enjoy working in your journal - then you are doing it right!

A R T    J O U R N A L

 I'm not saying we don't need the Art Journal How-To Books. I'm saying they are simply tools - a source on inspiration. Studying and appreciating other people's art is motivational. Just a jumping off point to experiment and find what works best for you.

A R T    J O U R N A L

 You don't need a how-to book. You don't need a teacher or a list of instructions. You just need something to draw and write with and something to draw and write on. I know I've made it sound easy. You are thinking there has to be so much more to art journaling. All you need it yourself.
Believe in You.

ART JOURNAL - Judy's Journal Journey 6.14.22

A R T    J O U R N A L

Your journal should not look like mine or anyone else's. My journal doesn't look like any journal I've ever seen. Not like the journals in the how-to books. There is no wrong way to create a journal. Any way you produce your journal is the correct way for you.

A R T    J O U R N A L

 In my Art Journal I do not produce art - at least not the kind of art I might frame or hang in a gallery. These journals are only for me. An extension of myself. A little piece of my soul. In my journal I create "Journal Art". Inspiring. Motivational. Personal.

As I contemplate my next Art Journal book, 
I wanted to share this book again. 

I hope you are art journaling and enjoying it and learning about yourself and your creativity.

As I said in this book, there are no rules, no right and wrong way to journal. What ever comes out of your thoughts and through your pencil is okay. Try it!

This book is available on Amazon.com
