Art Journaling: Back to the Basics

I'm participating in an art journal round robin with three other artist friends. We each have our own art journal that we start with and then mail it on to the person next on our list. Eventually all of us will have created four pages in every one's journal. I just started my very own art journal this year and only have two entries. I was all Gun ho about it at first and then never made the time to keep up with it. But now that I'm part of the round robin, I'm having SO much fun! It's very relaxing. Plus I'm getting alot of new ideas for future paintings and sculptures! Here are a couple pages that I've done so far...

Art journaling is a great way to create in any way you can think of. I've been using acrylics, watercolors, markers, oil pastels, glue sticks and a glossy gel medium. The sky is the limit though! You should give it a try!
