How to start an art journal? 

The type of art journaling that I talk about in Art Journaling 101 is very loose and free and unencumbered by rules. Art journaling is simply doing art in a journal. The good news? To make an art journal, you do not need a kit, a coach, a lesson or a guidebook. But you do need to discover - or rediscover - your sense of play.

Art Journaling 102: Materials

All about materials that you can use in your art journals, with thoughts on the materials I like best!

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!
