A few years ago I bought a large artist's sketch book, 11x 14. It is huge and has a lot of pages. I think I blogged about it years ago. I keep pictures from magazines in it that I like. I started doing some art journaling....doodling in it and now I don't like it as much. So I am going to refine some of the doodling. I may even color copy some of the pages and re-do them. The next art journal I am working on is mostly collage.
My friend Teresa asked me about art journaling. Here is the link to my previous post from a year or two. It really is just cutting "stuff" up, pasting it someplace, and doodling around it and making an ARTFUL mess on paper to keep your brain occupied.
