It’s the last Friday of the month - Welcome to Art Journal Friday at The Scrappy Tree!
I have just recently been brave enough to try this particular medium and I would love it if you would join me! The Scrappy Tree girls have been kind enough to me to see how enthused I am about this new form of expression and just as others have done for me, I want to share with you.
First of all I want to say quite clearly that ART JOURNALING IS FOR EVERYONE. Seriously, if I can do it, so can you. I had spent plenty of time admiring the amazing pages that the art journal experts turned out, thinking oh my GOSH I could never do that. And you know what? Maybe I never will. But it doesn’t matter! If you can put pen to paper, brush to paper, glue to paper – you can art journal. And all I’m asking of you today is one little page :) Papercraft, painting, sketching, collaging - the list is endless and it's all good!
The way that I got brave enough to try was through finding a prompt. Someone gave me a focus point to start from. It’s true to say that art journaling can be the most personal thing that you wouldn’t want to show anybody, or it can be the opportunity to try out a new technique along with a quote or a picture or a title that speaks to you in some way – speaks to you but no one else would know why you chose it.
I would love for this challenge to give you the chance to try art journaling if you never have before, because I have just started this journey myself and would love to share it! But equally, if you have been art journaling for some time and you want to take part, remember it’s an inspiration to others as well as every page being another step in your own journaling journey – everybody welcome!
Ok, so here’s the challenge!
Using the prompts below as inspiration, create a journal page over the weekend. If you’d like to share it with us (we would LOVE to see your pages, but if it’s too personal then we understand that too) then please either post it to the Art Journal Friday group on our Ning forum, or e-mail the image to me at email@example.com and I can post it for you. If you are taking part but don’t want to post your page, please come and leave some love! Please send your images in by Sunday of this week.
Now I ADORE
I hope that everybody can find something that speaks to them and inspires them this weekend! Happy art journaling :) from The Scrappy Tree!
