hi, i'm erin. i've been doing art all my life. but i just discovered something WAY awesome to do: ART JOURNAL. It's like you write an entry everyday...except your us art instead of words. it's amazing.
i totally wish you all would join me!
Okay
it was an old throw-away book that i took the fabric-cover thing off of:
(if you want e to type anything out for you...i can...)
COVER

Pages of glory

Hi Erin.

THAT is a brilliant idea  Smiley.  It has always been suggested that we WRITE our feelings down, never DRAW or PAINT them - which is again another form of expression.  It is probably something we have been made to 'put to one side'/'forget' from when we were children when we stopped drawing and learnt how to write - the drawing side of our brain tends to 'die' if it is something that is not continued on a regular basis as in your case it has been.

I am now going to look for and buy an A4 cartridge art book now and do some Art Journaling - you have inspired me!  Thank you  Grin

With blessings.

Your art journal looks great! I've recently started keeping a visual journal - using collage, paint, stamps etc. - and it's really fun! It's a great way to express yourself and your creativity.

Your art journal looks amazing!  I LOVE the cover... I did this for a while in an old sketchbook, but your cover looks so much better than my plain one did.  You've given me the inspiration to make a book solely for the purposes of art journaling.

That looks awesome! I like the cover as well. The lace 'stencil' looks really pretty on the last 2. Cheesy Thanks for sharing.

I adore your art journal, it is so inspiring! I am not much of a painter but I'd like to try this out. I love to collage in my journals. The picture of the girl is fabulous, it looks as if she is part of the wind and I love the bird painting!
