Why I Art Journal, and a few pages

G'Day Arty Peeps.

This week has been cooler at home, with yellow leaves underfoot,
a delicious hint of Autumn in the air, and a sense of more creative time to come.
I'm looking forward to more indoor play time, how about you?

With my kids growing up and fewer photos to scrapbook I find myself turning to art journals for creative release. They are a place for me to practice with products to see what I like, but also somewhere to explore my thoughts.
Some pages are deeply personal and never shared, others more playful,
still more others meaningful in emotional ways.
I find art journalling cathartic.

So, today I'm sharing just a few of my pages,
I have listed products under each image, in order of use.

Playing with products, seeing what I can layer onto what without making a big mess.

Archival and Stazon inkpads - Cherry Pink, Sunflower Yellow, orange, black
Fude Ball black pen

A cathartic piece, scribbling 'train of thought' journalling.

Vintage magazine images & paper napkin applied with gel medium
Fude Ball black pen
White Sharpie marker

Inspired by a challenge - yellow, navy blue, and a secret.

Flower cutouts made with a freebie and my Silhouette

I really like the freedom I have in my journals.
No rules, no striving for perfection.
It's a whole new world for me, and a great tangent for my creativity
as I'm finding less and less to put in my scrapbooks.

Thanks so much for dropping by today,
'til next time,
