Connecticut artist explains “art journal”
I am a walking color palette. Everywhere I look, I coordinate colors and objects. And I like to put all my thoughts in one place. Or, many places. My art room consumed an entire living room in our house – books and magazines everywhere, cupboards full of art supplies crying out for use.
With all of these things, it is only natural that they are organized or displayed in a fun way. Ways to spark conversations. Ways to show my stuff. After some Google searches for a more artistic medium through mixed media, I came across art journaling. This is not your everyday scrapbooking world. It is art, a self-expression encompassing all kinds of tools, mixed media and visions. And people of all skill levels can make these creations. Art journaling can be mind-blowing.
