Here are several pages of art journaling I have done. Often I just use journaling to vent or play. I know many artist who use their art journal pages specifically to try out new art techniques or to create new and interesting palettes with notes and ideas. — My journals tend to be more like the absent minded professor trying to record his mad experiments. (Such as the recent string theory!)
Often I simply journal. If I am really angry at Mr. for example – I will write all the mean and nasty things I would not want to say out loud but am thinking. It is very helpful and healing. I have learned however to paint over those words later because I would go back and read it and become angry all over again!!! –Rookie Mistake!!
So take a gander Alexander and feel free to copy ideas and patterns etc. for your own art journaling play. I do!
I never and you should Never copy something and sell it as your own though. That is just scum baggy. I am just talking about trying to duplicate techniques or ideas that you see that you think might be awesome to art journal. Oh, and don’t believe the lie that if you spit in your mask when swimming it won’t fog up — that never works!!
Art is free and there is almost no new art. It has all been done before and will all be done again. (Only maybe in fluorescent colors!)
