Only three weeks have passed in January and you have created so many beautiful pages. You are quite fast!
I have worked on quite a few pages but then, putting them together got me stuck until today. They are so different, it would look like a strange mix of whatever struck my fancy that day. And nobody would ever look at it later, except maybe me, and even that is not sure! So, I thought that maybe splitting them in three would help.
One would be a simple collection of art pieces I made. Just a collection without decorations, and with the few writings really aimed at helping me make it better next time or remembering how I did it. That's a place where I could go if I want to see all the wood fires I tried to draw year after year for example. I'm thinking of using a binder and maybe plastic pockets.
What do you do with your art?
The next one, would contain all the sketches, ideas and so on of things to make or craft one day. This could include patterns for automates, sketches of future summer blouses or just rough sketches of ideas of things to draw, tiny pieces of fabric and more. This would be more like a recording of the brainstorming before the actual creative process began.
Do you keep everything neatly organized, stack it in a box, or just throw it away?
The last one would be a recording of moments or things I enjoyed or that were important to me that day. The subjects could change, it's just what I am thinking now. I would draw it without spending days on one sketch, so I'll see in a few months if my drawing skills have improved. I aim to draw 3 sketches a week.
All of them are related to art and have art pieces inside but are they art journals? Maybe it is not an art journal I will create after all...
Also, I discovered that this whole journaling thing takes a lot of time and I sometimes find that it prevents me from doing other crafty things in the time I can use for crafts/arts( like sewing myself a new blouse for example).
