My very favorite thing about art journaling is thumbing through old entriesand looking over little pieces of my past.
I pulled out an old journal today.
These are a couple of pages from over a year ago:
Time goes by so fast, doesn't it?
The thing I enjoy most about art journaling is preserving memories.
Before art journaling, I had grand intentions of scrap-booking on a regular basis. That little ship sailed and sunk, my friends. I felt like I was swimming in photos and scrapbook paper. (Those adhesive mounting squares frustrated the heck out of me too.) And then, before I knew it, I'd feel so guilty about not creating a keepsake for my family.
Art journaling is my happy medium. I can still put together a scrapbook every now and then if I feel like it; I don't have to feel like I'm overwhelmed with memorabilia; I get to scratch my creative itch; and I can preserve meaningful memories every day.
It's been a happy adventure.
How about you?
