I'm sitting in Starbucks (so thankful they finally got free wi-fi...it's about time!) researching art journaling, and I've decided to take a short break to blog. I have been wanting to begin art journaling for a while now, and I decided today was the day to begin. After I leave Starbucks, I'll be heading to Michael's craft store to pick up a few supplies. I already have a journal I can use, mod podge & brushes, and lots of stamps, ink, and colored pens. Unfortunately before the move, I trashed all my magazines, so I'm going to have to start up another collection of those. I am not really fond of paint, so I don't think I'll be doing much painting in my journal.
I am so very excited about this! I have journaled for as long as I can remember (although my journaling has slowed a bit since I began my blog, but I still do write in it periodically), and the thought of creating a more visual journal is really appealing to me right now. Tomorrow it's supposed to rain all day, and if that is the case, I'll have plenty of time to experiment with my newest form of creative expression.
So at this point, I know very, very little about art journaling & if any of you out there has experience with it, I would love to hear your recommendations, thoughts, advice, etc. Thanks in advance!!!
