Art Journaling with Friends

by Valerie on November 15, 2011 · 7 comments

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. For more information on art journaling, see the end of this post.

Love this! I had so much fun on Sunday with you all. Thanks for sharing all of your different journals. I tend to like to use one at a time, but just like with the planner pad, I’m inspired to start an idea/inspiration book. Hope you have a great week!

Thanks Lisa – I am a notebook addict, so it is fun to have different ones for different things :) Have a great week!

Art Journalling + Teaism sounds like bliss. I am so happy you have found a wonderful hobby and an amazing group of people to do it with.

I love when you share these types of posts, Valerie! They show our lives should be so much more than daily routines. :-)

Hi Shirley – thank your for your comment. I had never thought of it this way before but you are right, there is definitely more to life than routines. I think I have a blog post idea there, somewhere – must think about it more :) In any case, thank you for stopping by. Hugs.
