Inspired in part by this book
And this book that I recently bought for a friend.
I have started my own "Artists Journal". I've only done one page so far but it was really fun! What I like about it is that you can pretty much do whatever you like. You can use famous paintings and glue them in or you can draw your own. You can use that tiny bit of ribbon that's been kicking around your desk for ages because you cannot throw it away or all those magazine clippings that are taking up space. So fun!
I decided to finally use this beautiful velvet covered journal that my mom gave me a long time ago that I just haven't been able to bring myself to use. It has gorgeous pages of handmade paper.
So, at the moment my plan is to not have a plan. :) I'm just going to go page by page and try out different types of art. I really like calligraphy so I'm going to try and incorporate that into my pages as I go along. Maybe I will write down some of my favorite poems or verses to go with pictures that I draw or paint or print out. We will see. That is the beauty of an artists journal, you can make it what you want it to be.
