Art Journal

 I have lots of different kinds of journals--one filled with ideas and random thoughts, one full of quotes, one full of writing, another one for my garden, etc. I have never done an an art. I know it's a surprise. I think a part of me just didn't think I could create something that worked for me. Well that is over! I stumbled upon a book, Journal fodder 365, by Eric M. Scott and David R. Modler and I am in love. There are 12 themed chapters, ranging from Personal Mythologies and Histories to Connections and Relationships (all with questions to answer),  dozens of step-by-step instructions for painting, drawing, wiring and collage techniques, 12 suggested excursions for you and your journal, and 12 exploded views of showing real-life applications of the tutorials and prompts. I've only just begun but I can see this becoming a daily part of my life now.  I can't wait to see where this journal leads! I am curious, do you keep this kind of journal? Do you do entries on a daily basis?


  1. I don't write daily now but for 2 years I did -- my writing was accompanied by photos. It was very fun.

  2. Thank you for giving me encouragement!
    Lots of love, Martha D.
