Art Journal

Pages in Stages

While I love making pretty art journal pages, purely for the sake of creating, I also love working in my junque journal. While my more traditional art journal pages are usually completed in one sitting, JJ pages are built in stages, over a number of days. My junque journal is my diary, catching my thoughts, feelings, and dreams. As a result, it changes as the days pass. I thought I would share a peek at the stages of a recent page.

As you can see, layers are built, areas embellished, and journaling added, until the page feels complete. I love this form of creating and diary keeping. My junque journal is my therapist, my safe place, and a great friend. I hope you are lucky enough to have such a wonderful outlet!

Happy arting!
