I’m having a lot of fun with listing this season since I made my art journal from scratch and am constricted by the existing page designs. While answering the list prompts, I’ve noticed that I’ve made many of them into affirmations.
This first one is more journal and less art… the prompt was “in the next 6 months”, but I turned it into an affirmation for what I’d like my ideal day to be like.
I altered this next prompt a bit, by using treasure instead of gratitude. I used an art prompt as well, stripes on stripes.
I used an art prompt with this one as well, black and white. And instead of “proud of” I used “love”.
I had fun with this one because I used tags and wrote the lists on the back of them. (3 photos of same page)
I don’t use magazine photos in my art journaling very often but I think this one turned out pretty darn cute.
I’d say four out of the five prompts were affirmative “lists”. I love that I’m doing this… it makes the journal pages even more inspiring and fun for me. Do you have a vision board to focus on what you want your future to be like? I may take pics of some of these journal pages and tack them up on a wall in my art studio.
Have a wonderful weekend my friends! And as always, thank you so much for tuning in and witnessing my creative growth as an artist.

What exactly is art journaling?
Ambiguous answer: whatever you want it to be! More specific answer: Art journaling is a notebook that you fill with drawings, paintings, thoughts, words, lyrics, photos, magazine cutouts and random ephemera from your life and events. It can be where you practice art techniques or sketch out big projects. It can be your journal where all things creative + all things emotional intersect. You can put in pretty things you find and want to keep or it can be where you collect and process through your deepest, darkest thoughts. It is where art and journaling meet.
