Sometimes You Just Want To Play

Art Journal Play

It’s playtime!!!  Your art journal is your playground.  When I have no idea what I want to create I might open my art journal and just put in some washi tape and a few scraps. Or, I might scribble with a black marker then add some paint color in random places.  It’s just fun to play in your art journal without a plan. It’s very freeing and opens up your mind to all kinds of creative inspiration.  I just wanted to share a few photos of some art journal pages from one of my journals where I was just playing around and having a good time.  Art is fun.  The process of learning is exciting.  Don’t wait until you think you have learned enough to start.  Just jump in and play and let the journey take you where it wants to go.  Just have fun.

Until next time.

“Bird” June Calendar Page

This is the June Calendar Art Journal Page that almost wasn’t. lol  Sometimes things just don’t go very smoothly when you are creating and this was one of those times.  But, its times like this that make me love the pieces that come out the way you want them to even more. And it is times like this help me appreciate the process and learn to look past a “pretty face” and see that the fun is in the journey.  Without the journey of ups and down, good and bad, pretty art and not so pretty art we might miss something important in our learning process.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to miss a single step in my art journey.  Thank you for joining me on my journey and I hope you are on one of your own.
