I seriously haven't been able to get these journals out of my head since I first saw them.

I love how you make your own books -- they're absolutely perfect, and I have yet to see a "blank" offered in any store near me.  I also adore how you have adorned and decorated the pages.  Beautiful!

I would love to pick up journaling and learn how to make such beautiful journals as you!

Your journals are so damn gorgeous! I am completely in love with them, like hipslikecinderella said, I haven't been able to get them out of my mind since I saw them! The colors are amazing, your binding looks very neat and sturdy, and I love that the paper you used is in different colors!

Your spread is also awesome, I can't wait to see more pages from you!

As for me, I've always wanted to start an art journal but never got around to doing it - however, I've done the odd 'to be included in my future journal' page here and there, and I usually favor 220-250g-weight paper. I used to use it for my building design classes, that's how I fell in love with it. It's quite thick so you can use watercolors on it, and it's usually a light cream color instead of white, which I love.

 Shocked It is SO nice to come here and find more comments from fellow Craftster's!
Thank you all so much for the compliments! Most of all I am feelin' groovy reading that some of you have been inspired to GO MAKE ART! WooHoo! That's what it's all about!  Grin

I think the coolest thing about keeping an art journal is that there is no wrong way. No rules. I love it, being the old hippie that I am  Wink Just make art with a big dose of peace and love!

After I send this post I will put up another pic of one of my art journal pages in hopes that someone is inspired to spend some time MAKING ART...Not War!  Grin
