Journaling Arts and Art Journaling
©2005 by aisling d'art
Personal journals are like diaries. You use them to tell your own life story, and sometimes
to sort through issues and challenges. Your diary may be handwritten or typed. You can illustrate it
with sketches, photos, or mementos... or allow your words to tell the entire story.
"Art journaling" is illustrating your personal journal or diary. You can use sketches, photos,
paintings, or collage. You can glue in receipts, newspaper headlines or clippings,
entries from the TV Guide for that day, or... anything visual, really.
I've always kept a diary and illustrated it. As an adult, I still do. And, I've
found that people--especially women--find new meaning and insights when they keep illustrated
journals. In these pages--and more, on the way--I hope to share ideas and inspiration to
help you find your own "voice" in art journaling, too.
