Yeah, I still love art journaling!

Each month this year, I plan to focus on a different aspect of my creative pursuits to find out where each one fits in my life. In February, I focused on scrapbooking and had a great time accomplishing a ton. For March, I set my intention to focus on art journaling. But, at the beginning of the week, I wasn't really feeling it. I had three photo books I wanted to finish before the sale ended at Shutterfly on March 4th, and I had a huge photo order I received that I organized and then wanted to start scrapping. But, this morning, I set aside those feelings and decided to turn to art journaling.
I started by thumbing through my stack of art journals (complete and in progress) and looking at an art journaling book I received for Christmas. I pulled out some new supplies wanted to use(water color crayons and washi tape) and gathered some images.
And then I began to play! I had so much fun creating these pages. The first one I made from scratch, using the crayons to create the background and then adding layers with lots of my favorite supplies to make something like a bulletin board or graffiti wall. The second two were completed on existing backgrounds. I' really looking forward to playing in my art journals this month!

It's always a joy to have your creative mojo back isn't it. I've never really gotten into art journalling but I do love being creative in other ways. Todays creativity is covering grey hairs with dye lol

Great pages. I've tried art journaling & enjoyed it, but only in spurts I think.

What a great idea, to spend a month at a time playing with different things you enjoy.
These are lovely pages and I especially like the last one with the tree and the quote.
