    Art Journaling 102: Materials

    The materials that I use in my art journals. 

    This is a companion post to Art Journaling 101.

    Paper + Journals.

    Loose paper vs. Bound Journal. You can work on loose paper and bind it together later using book-binding techniques {fun to learn} or simply store in a large box. I started art journaling and doodling in a Strathmore wire-bound pad. Loose paper is a wonderful way to start because you can play without committing to any particular journal. If you adore the idea of working in a journal, there are a lot of great bound journals available. A standard writing journal will have thin paper which will NOT hold up to mixed media work or even wet media like watercolor or acrylics. So you'll want paper made for art. Or go the other direction and use an old book and prepare the surface for your art!

    The cards are all about playing BINGO; the name is the word or phrase in cell B1. You pick your five-phrase prompt. Create your creative prompt by putting the numbers ONE TWO THREE FOUR and FIVE in random order. If that's 4-5-2-1-3 then your prompt is B4 - I5 - N2 - G-1 O3. Find the words that are in those cells and that's your random prompt!

    The newest designs {August 2014}: Packs #01 through #04.
    The original designs {pre-August 2014}: Packs #101 through #112. 

    Cards are available in the Etsy shop.

    The words and phrases are designed to work in harmony and to spark something creative in your art journal.

    Art Journaling for Kids + Teens

    "The artist must possess
    the courageous soul
    that dares and defies."
    ~Kate Chopin

    "stories"

    my daughter created this 9x12" art journal page when she was 8, watercolor paper, neocolors + water

    Welcome to ART JOURNALING 101 for Kids, Teens + Beginners who want to learn how to art journal! Hop over and read Art Journaling 101 for Kids [Prequel] for some background info. My kids started doing a bit of art journaling simply by playing around with the art materials out on the table. All it really is - playing with colors and words and images - playing is the key word. It is not about the pretty page at the end! It is about enjoying the part where you create the art. The part where you get thoughts out on your paper.
