Art Journal #1,  Art Journaling

My First Art Journal Page

Last week I did my first art journal page.  Art journaling has been on my long list for a while and since I have been feeling creative I decided to start.  I used acrylic paints, sakura pigma micron pen, washi tape, cardstock and for texture, scraps of a door screen and kraft paper on watercolor paper.  It was different but fun to create.  Once it was done I decided to give it to my husband for Valentine’s Day.

I’m still not sure what type of book I should use for art journaling.  Watercolor sketch books seem really good since they are thick but are very pricey for just 30 pages.  Larger regular sketchbooks are more reasonable and have lots of pages but the paper seems thin even when I add gesso.  If anyone has any suggestions on what to use I would appreciate it.

I will be placing images of my pages here.
