In my art class at school, we made our own art journals to use as sketchbooks and to use with the weekly prompt. I love having an art journal. I want to record my daily thoughts, memories, emotions and ideas, but I find this difficult to do in a traditional journal. Writing has never been really my thing. But with an art journal, I can express myself without being limited to words. I love having this freedom of exploring new mediums and creating works of art in my sketchbook.
I decorated the front cover with a collage of various pictures, ribbon, feathers, etc.
Inside front cover... more collage and mixed media.

Another journal entry... white charcoal and acrylic over mixed media.
