Art Journaling

Dear fellow Journalers,

     Red, yellow, bronze, orange – Fall is finally here! Every season of the year has its own unique perks. Spring is a time of new beginnings, new buds, new gardens. Summer is plenty of beach weather and time to visit family and friends. Winter is filled with holidays and hunkering down with hot chocolate and a good book. Fall is the smell of burning leaves and new school adventures.

     This is the perfect time of the year to begin an art journal. I’m not an artist but I do appreciate those who draw and combine colors. I decided to make an art journal based on a quote using colors I love.

     I love flowers and coloring so I took a page from an adult coloring book, colored the flower and made that my cover. I then typed my quote and after saving it, printed it out. I mounted it on cardstock and then with double-stick tape, taped it to the page. I then used matte Mod Podge ( I have to admit I was nervous about this step!) to preserve the cover. Here are some other ideas for you to try:

     Trace your hand onto the page. Express your emotions by coloring each digit.

     Use die-cuts or stencils or even older journal pages cut up and collaged.

     Paint over your background – make a Mandela

     It’s fall – use lots of color and maybe a leaf or two.

Happy art journaing!
