On Sunday, I got together with a few friends (Julia, Lisa, Julie and Rachel) to Art Journal at Teaism – all of us had attended previous workshops on the topic and wanted to art journal as part of a group again. While we all worked individually on our pages, there is something very fun about art journaling with others.
Someone asked me recently how many notebooks I have going at the same time so I included the last picture for that reason – for art journaling, I mainly use the beige notebook (with the swirls and design on it), though I also sometimes use the pink/purple notebook (with the tree). The beige notebook is for general art journaling, while the pink/purple notebook is more of an idea book about outfits and personal style, which has been fun to put together a bit. I also have a small list notebook (beige and brown) which is a hodge podge of to-do’s and longer term lists and rarely gets any sort of collaging or journaling. Finally, the green notebook is my planner (no collaging as I like to keep it on the lighter end weight wise) while the multicolored one is a paper journal I occasionally write in, and lately have been adding collages to. I do not carry all of them around at all times. I usually have my planner and the list notebook with me at all times, but the others tend to stay at home on a day-to-day basis.
