Last year I played in an old book I used as an art journal. I didn't last very long, but I did enjoy it. This year I started a very simple ring bound journal with cardboard covers. It's easy to add in more and more pages as I create new ones.
For me art journaling is to play. Play with new and different techniques and mediums. And to play with words. I love words and quotes, as you know, and I like to use some in my art journal.
I have used my watercolors, coloring pages and odd pieces of paper. Without any pressure to create every day/week I add to it whenever I need some creative play. I look forward to fill it up!
