Does anyone here art journal?

I only recently discovered this art in July but now I'm loving it!  Instead of just writing in my journal, I now incoporate collages, cut and paste souvenirs from the day, photographs, fabrics, etc into each day's entry.  It's very freeing and a lot of fun.

This livejournal community is very inspiring: http://www.livejournal.com/community/jr__nal

And this website is helpful: http://www.aisling.net/

It's fun to post pictures of your pages and things that you're proud of.  Here are some of my recent ones so you can get an idea of what I mean:

Great topic! I love the work that you've posted -- more, please! :-) I just started art journalling myself, and I'll scan some pages in as soon as I get my camera fixed. My journal's sort of mixed media thing right now: paint, crayon, pencil, ink, and lots of paper crafty stuff like ticket stubs and programs. I'll definitely check out the websites!

spicymulatta,

Just checked out aisling's site -- you're right, it's really inspiring. It made me want to get collaging right then.

I started my art journal about a year ago.  I write poetry and I hit this horrible block.  Then I saw an art journal a friend started and it totally helped.  Now I create these wonderful images in my writing and it comes from the simple act of collecting and assembling pictures.

"we weren't always oceans apart"


hypocrite.


lips. kiss. kiss. kiss. kiss. kiss.

about two boys. gay together. being harassed. me being super pissed because i love them both to pieces.


thoughts of an insomniac


movie audition. my monologue on left [i memorized the entire thing! and still didn't make it in...well, that's a lie i'm an extra] and my thoughts before and after auditioning.


lonely. lonely. lonely. lonely.


day before my sweet sixteen.


birthday [left: "can you say hot?" and the cooky guy has a tiny speech bubble saying "hot."]
[right: the aftermath of my party. and a sexayyyy man]


asian accent: i say what the f*ck b*tch.
[right: sh*tty day, hence the garbage crap]


confused. [also ironic. the actual entry is extremely neat and organized with bullets... Roll Eyes ]
