"creative mixed media art journal explorations"
January seems to be the month for me that I start to get into the mood for art journaling again .. there is something about this time of the year that makes me want to capture the fragments that make up my life.. images and visuals that hold my imagination and play freely in my art journal.
Keeping an Art Journal is for me something of a hit and miss at times.. I rarely stick to any agenda or rules , I tend to have several art journals going at the same time .. some are sketchbooks on a particular theme, I have a couple of travel art journals where i tend to collage, sketch and jot down ideas ..
I love the idea of visibility...and this year I am trying to keep a record of the fragments of daily life that often get lost amidst other creative busyness.. art journals online sometimes i see a picture in a magazine , a flash of texture a colour, that may provide inspiration for an artwork later on .. so a daily journal ..or not even daily ..just as it happens really ( remember i dont like rules :-) art journals online
Art Journaling can be as simple or a involved as one chooses to go with, a pencil and an art journal book with good quality drawing paper are the basics ..and every mixed media collage supply one can think of can be included if so desired... Starting with a blank watercolor sketchbook or creating an art journal altered art journal from a used book .. the options are endless ... so lets play...

~ I am going to try and keep a record of my art journaling progress
~ so I lasted until Day 8 so far... phew..it has been hard the last couple of days to keep going... we are completely snowed under.. have not seen any weather like this since the 1980'2 .. lots of provisions need to be made, extra firewood be brought in, snowigloos being build and a whole different way of life has creeped in ..an interesting transition .. that seems to find its way in my art journaling too ... so
~ I will try and keep a listing of art supplies i use for my art journals online ,
~ May people have ask me what kind of art journal sketchbook I use.. it is one that is manufactured here by a small papermill close to me ..and unfortunately not widely available outside of the uk .. but a good quality heavygrade cartrisge paper or a hot pressed watercolor paper journal will be good to use and withstand the mixed media collage techniques
~ Different art journals from different manufactureres.. it is a case of trial and error to find the one that suits ones style of art journaling techniques best ..
I always have my diary right beside my computer.. and lately it has turned into a playground for my art supplies which in turn made me want to carve more stamps to make it a visual diary .. i love the idea of journal stamps..little visual reminder design elements
Art Journaling techniques Day 24 hand carved stamps - eraser carving or linocut carving tool rubber carving handmade rubberstamps
It does not always take much art supplies.. a simple potato print can yiled some great art journal stamps too ..simply use a sharp knife, a razor blade or craft knife... or if you have then linocut carving tools to create simple but effect art journaling stamps designs
Art Supplies I used for Day 24 Art Journaling Techniques Day 24 ~ I will try and list as many art supplies as I can, some I dont have the name or source for anymore, like rubberstamps I have had for years etc, but I will try my best to list all the art supplies that I can :-)
*** Gripster xacto knife 10 this gives nice neat edges and allows to cut into corners where the gauges struggle to get a clean line
*** Speedball Linocutter Set this is a good basic starter set for eraser carving and making your own hand carved stamps ... if you really get into it then it might consider investing into getting finedetal woddcutting tools like the ones i use below
*** Individual Wood Carving Tools here you can choose between very fine gauges of the blade and larger flat ones depending on whether you prefer to cut fine detail stamps or larger bold stamps .. I have aabout 4 of these in the fines gauge and one deep wide cauge for cuting away the excess borders when i carve stamps
I like carving stamps whilst watching tv ..and maya often plays along too.. se we have wooden carve protectors, which is a little wooden board with a lip that the lino or mastercarve rubber can lead against to prevent slipping and a steady lip to carve against
