Here are some of those art journal pages that I have been working on. None of them have any actual journaling at the moment but they will in the very near future! I try to keep a handful ready to journal on at a moments notice.
I added one that had not been colored ( or painted) yet so you can see it before all the color work. I draw my inspiration from several different places...nature, source books, people, inanimate objects, animals, my family, dreams...so many different places!
Just look around you and you will see all kinds of really cool patterns and designs. Even if you model your drawings after another person, if you will just keep on drawing you will eventually come up with your "own art". Try it! Email me if you have any questions, I'm always so happy to share anything that I have learned!
