I started a REAL art journal
What I mean by 'real' is this one I will actually paint in :) I have a moleskin but I tend to mostly do pencil sketches in it. I love it, but some pages are odd to say the least. It's where I play and try new things.
When organizing my work area the other night, I found a scrapbook with beautiful cardstock pages measuring 10 x 10. Since I don't really scrapbook I decided to start an art journal with it.
This week we finally got some rain! 1.3 inches and my lawn and garden said 'awwwwwwwwwww'! My goal is to try and put a special meaning to each art piece in here so that I can look back someday and remember what was happening or what I was feeling at the time. I guess that's what journaling is about but I want this to be less 'personal' and more about my everyday life so that my children and grandchildren will be able to know me better.....when I'm gone, or just old and grey and too tired to talk about my life anymore :)
Here's to hoping I can keep this up! I'm also praying it won't be a one-page wonder!
