Did you start a new art journal today?

Happy New Year!

Did you start a new art journal today?

I did.

 

I wanted to get back to creating art journal pages. I dug up one of my unopened art journals from the pile that I have stored in the corner.

Gathered my paints together and cracked open the new art journal to a blank page.

 

Usually a blank page makes me draw a blank, but not today. I’ll discuss that blank page business another time 🙂

Today, I know what I’m going to do on this page.

 

Something simple and quick for the beginning of the new year. No need to overthink it.

art journal page – Good things will happen in 2016

 

See? Simple, no need to make it complicated.

 

Sometimes you want to just write and paint, and leave it be.

 

This is supposed to be play.

 

Go-with-the-flow time.

 

Get “messy” time.

 

Do you agree?

 

Discuss art journaling


So, did you start a new art journal today? Tell me all about it:
