I adore art journaling, absolutely worship folks like Teesha and Judy and Kim who work on their journals regularly.
I buy all the journaling books and mags. Swoon and swoon more.
I own all the supplies. Swoon.
Yet I never seem to get it together.
Between managing all my other commitments, it seems that Art Journaling always falls by the wayside. It sounds ridiculous to say that I have too much 'other' art going on to journal, but that is basically what happens.
I do keep a written journal, one that is next to my bed, just plain old hand writing.....thoughts and dreams and sketches....I am sporadic
at best and will sometimes go months without entries, how sad is that.
But there was something about those Teesha YouTube videos that sucked me right back in. She made it look so easy!
I made her "Amazing 16 page Journal." I am now in the embellishment phase, sort of randomly working on pages. I did put some writing down on part of one page (below). Its my plan to finish all the collage and then carry this to Artfest with me. I will be able to do writing, doodling, etc. around all my collage parts. And I won't have to carry too many supplies (just the journal and a black pen) which is cool.
I am hopeful this is a habit I may be able to manage moving forward? And maybe I will become an Art Journal person after all.
One could only hope, huh?
