Art journal materials

Today I made a trip to Michaels and bought some things for a mothers  day present and to finally start my art journal. 

First thing I needed was a journal 

This journal was a good fit because it is a mixed media sketchbook with paper that doesn’t bleed through. I never know what media I will be using so I decided on this one which will hopefully work out pretty good. 

Next week ill be giving a more on depth review of this journal and hopefully ill be filling it up with a bunch cool stuff. 

Art Journal 

I’ve been thinking of a way to frequently be more creative and I recently stumbled upon art journaling and I knew about it before hand but it was mostly just collages and normal journaling. It interests me because I simply don’t have the time to sit in front of canvas and paint on a daily, because of life and work and family my day is simply packed with things I have to do. But journaling has always been something I can just do while I’m waiting or messing around. And I think getting the abstract way of life on paper simply to make way for the big idea would be amazing. In this post I’ll have some examples of art journals but I think mine will consist of words on paper and other means of artistic expression.
