Do you have unfinished art journals hanging around? I often get comments from readers that they are unable to finish their journals. Today, I want to share five things I like to do to keep my journal active.
Here is the finished page. You can't really see the background anymore but when I filled in my background it allowed me to get my creative wheels turning. My idea was to create
a clothes line of words I want to identify myself with.
2. Write a short, uplifting message to yourself. I like to write things that make me happy and breathe hope.
3. Keep it simple. Your journal pages don't have to be complex. Relax and pick one idea or emotion to focus on. I created this page about moving to a new city and starting over.
4. Travel with your journal. Get up and take your journal outside or to the coffee shop. You will be surprised at how quickly a page comes together when you are in a different environment.
5. Leave it open. I kept my journal open on a page I needed to fix and I finally couldn't look at it anymore! So, I was forced to fix it.
I hope some of these tips help you complete your art journal. Crack them open and create!
