    Art Journaling vs. Scrapbooking

    Art journaling. Free. Creative expression. Color, composition, words, texture, form. Scrapbooking. Creative documentation. Color, structure, layout, words, photographs. Art journaling is less structured and relies less on photographs. Beyond pattered cardstock and alphabet stamps, how do these creative endeavors relate?

    This week, after a year off, I scrapbooked the last few pages in my kids' scrapbooks ~ the girls and I working with cardstock, tape, photographs, markers, and stamps spilling across the dining table.

    What struck me was that creating a scrapbook page felt more structured, linear, more planned, with a goal of documentation. My style is without chronological order, pages created at random. Something I do as a gift to my daughters. Art journaling is free, flexible, chaotic, gesso over layers... something I do for me. Two different forms of creativity.

    How do your creative endeavors influence each other? Do your ATCs influence your visual journaling? How do your crapbooking and art journaling overlap? Does your photography influence your scrapbooking? Does your watercoloring influence your journaling? Does your writing influence your parenting?
