art journal: day 1

Today is my first attempt at art journaling and I'm having fun with it too! I am realizing that it's my journal so I'm incorporating words that will inspire me when I'm in a funk. I've never really been that great at doodling, so that part is a bit challenging, but I am getting ideas for some new paintings.

Have you started your journal yet?

Art journals can be a lot of fun! I've added this to the EBSQ Friday Five.

I don't have a journal but I sketch almost everyday...or work on linears...do you find that journalling takes time away from your other work?

I think art journaling could take away from my other work, but I'm experimenting with it a bit and using it more as a tool for ideas. So I think that if I give myself permission to use it like that, I won't feel so guilty for not working in my journal everyday. Just as long as I'm creating something, I'm happy! =)
