Luscious layers of color

Journaling is such a wonderful way to learn more about your inner creativity.

As an artist you will grow. And with an art journal there are no obstacles. 

Just being able to create everyday is very helpful to me. That's why I am so in love with art journaling. There's no competition. No right or wrong. It's just your very own space to create.

Above all with that art journal if you don't like what your doing, well then just turn the page over.
It isn't about perfection. It's about creativity. Creativity lies within. Within your soul. 


So let it out. That creativity. Just grab your art journal and have some fun!



Slapping down color randomly. Scribbling. 
Adding bits of collage. Adding more color.


flowers suddenly begin to bloom


hearts just appear from out of the blue

leaves come to life amidst random scribbles


and snowflakes fall

Ahhhhh what a wonderful world!

Sure hope that I could give you some inspiration. Girl you just might wanna grab that journal of yours.

  1. This is just magical! Your blog post brought to mind one of my favourite Picasso quotes: "Inspiration Exists, but it has to find you working."

  2. Danke für die vielen Ideen Michelle, das
    freut mich sehr, da ich mich noch in den Kinderschuhen des "Art-Journals" befinde. Es ist toll, dass alles erlaubt ist, kleben, zeichnen, malen, schreiben, das macht einen Gesamteindruck, der mir besonders gut gefällt.

    1. Ein Art Journal ist so eine wunderbare, einmalige Sache wo ich ganz alleine mit meinen Gedanken und Gefühlen bei mir bin. Ich habe neuerdings ein deutsche Seite über Art Journaln... http://kreativtreff.blogspot.de - ich bin allerdings noch sehr jungfräulich beim bloggen. Es soll in naher Zukunft strukturierter werden.
      Liebe Grüße und viel Freude am journaln!
