Art Journaling Day 1

Art journaling is amazing! It allow you to be creative without any limitations. Expressing yourself and letting your self be free is very soothing.

I love putting in my headphones listening to some music and just zone out. I feel like this is when I make my most precious art pieces. Because there is no thinking Involved. I just draw or paint or create what I feel.

Wether it be from the feel of the music or the emotion of a bad day. Maybe even a joyful event.

They say spending time art journaling at least once a day for 10 minutes helps your skills as an artist increase.

The greatest thing I find about art journaling is that you don’t have to be a good drawer. Just as long as you have an imagination you can art journal. There are no mistakes. There are no bad art journals. Because its not met for other people. It’s met for you to express yourself and release some creative energies and emotions.

So I definitely encourage you to give it a shot! And stay tuned for more art journaling :)

New Art Journal Pics!

So I have been working on a new art journal out of something recycled. I used an old thick book with lots of pages, that I was never going to read again. glued 4 or 5 pages together, and antiqued them. Then I started adding drawings, pictures, paintings in the inside. The words of the book still in it, adding a cool look. However some pages I glued drawing paper onto them that way i could have a blank space to draw. However, this art journal is more then that, it is an everything journal, to write, draw, glue, paint, and do whatever i want to. Just letting me come out in different forms, in the style of a book/journal. ENJOY!

 

 

This is the cover of my journal, so far I don’t really want to add anything to it. I like it just the way it is. I this out of a games magazine. It reminded me of the movie ‘ The Never Ending Story’ and i apsolutley¬†love that movie! Its like fantasy, and mysterious, makes me want to crack it open and see whats inside. Eventually I want to put a lock on it!

 

 

Here you can just see how the pages are antiqued, as well as the words of the book! Neat huh! That is a painting i did when I was bored, just a simple messy pineapple! lol

 

 

Now this one your probably thinking huh? But i love video games! especially PC. However, this is the game Assassins Creed for XBOX 360 , and the other page is one that i made a blank drawing paper.
