I haven’t kept an art journal for a while now. In fact, the last time I worked on this particular journal was in 2010. I bought an amazing Vincent Rossini book with super thick handmade paper and I love the thing. It’s a great journal and well made. After purchasing, I promptly filled in 5 or so pages and then shoved it on the art bookshelf for the next 3 years while I concentrated on work and other art projects. I pulled it out the other day since I’ve been visiting many blogs with a lot of journal art and they’ve inspired me to finish up this one. It’s a mixed media art journal and I thought I’d share the pages online too. I don’t really use text on my pages since I’m not a writer (clearly) and I don’t need to express myself with words or share my feelings. That’s not for me. But I sure do like to make pretty pictures and most often I sell them, trade them or make them for work and barely have any left for myself. A journal keeps them all in one spot and is something I can actually keep. Yay! Here are some pages, from 2010 and from this weekend too.
