Art Journal | A Visual Feast for the Eyes

An art journal should be a visual feast for the eyes. When you open it up, it should bring you happiness and a few surprises, even when it’s your own journal!

When I look through my old art journals it’s like going to a great exhibition. They often make my heart flutter a bit. They make me happy because I’ve included things that really make my heart sing. The more I create the more I recognize what things and techniques makes me most happy and I add more of that…

To get that visual fest, for myself, I need to work with collage, doodles, patterns, bright and happy colors. I need to mix things up a lot, so I don’t get bored with one color or one technique. I love adding a bit too much. I love exaggerations and colors that pop. I love when the pages feel like they’ve got something to say. That’s when I find myself on the page.

It’s been a while since I shared one of my regular art journal peeks, so I’ve got a lot to share. Let’s start with this doodely watercolor spread today…
