The Magic of the Art Journal World

I sometimes think of my art journal as a magical fantasy world. Like a physical place that you can visit any time you choose. I think the more you visit this Magical Kingdom the more of what happens there you can bring back with you, into your regular life. I think that any creativity that you let out inside your art journal will stay with you, and eventually after a few years it will start to rub of to your other life. It might even become your regular world.

That’s why Art Journaling (or keeping a sketchbook or what ever you choose to call your notebook) is such an awesome habit. It creates artists of regular people, like you and me!

In Art Journal Word pink elephants pass you by on bikes and the sky can be any color you choose. Roses grow over your head, and birds chirp because you’re there…

It’s a world available to anyone who takes the time to visit it and stay for a while to create something, anything.

You have to leave the creations in there, but you get to bring back some of the magic with you.

It will start to influence the way you decorate your house, the way you dress, the way you see the world. I know, because it happened to me.

    Your journal is lovely! I started my art journal few months ago, and it’s magical, it’s transforming the way I react to my surrounds. I was brave enough to be part of the DIY postcard swap, I’m receiving so beautiful and artistic postcards. Thanks for let me be part of this creative event.

    Beautiful page and stories get along with the day ..
    I carried the journal with me everyday to work, sometimes, the correct words or quote just jumped in front of me that I couldn’t resist but jot down in one of page.
