Weekly Art Journaling – Looking Back

Even though I didn’t journal as much as I did in 2011, I still created quite a few art journaling pages this year. Here are some of my favorites:



The ones I love the most have happy colors and/or sentiments that really speak to me. I am always extra delighted by the ones I drew just because it’s a skill I am working on.


I’ve enjoyed looking at others’ art and trying to recreate it, too. Just to show myself I can do it. I just need to try. Sometimes it’s hard but it’s always fun.

I plan to continue the Art Journaling journey in 2013. It’s one of my most cherished ways to spend time. I have to make a good list of ideas but I am not ready to leave it behind yet. I am so grateful I stuck with Art Journaling enough to find my own voice and my own way of truly enjoying the process.

Here’s to a 2013 full of art!

  • Hi …. I’m so happy and grateful that I stumbled upon your site. It’s a delicious feast! I’m working on my first art journal now…. I’m wondering – do you use gesso on your pages? I hope I’m not being one of those annoying people looking for tips before (or without) enrolling in one of your classes. Thanks!
