There is something I need to admit. It’s been a really LONG time since I’ve paid any attention to my art journals. Like, months. Which for any avid art journaling human is a very long time. I have been creative, don’t get me wrong, it’s just been in other areas. Like home decor DIY stuff, or this massive fast food still life painting  So, when it’s been a while since I’ve art journaled, I find that art journaling prompts really come in handy. They are a springboard to get my creativity flowing and help me get the motions going. I actually got started art journaling with Get Messy Art, and there was a weekly set of art journaling prompts to work with. Prompts are a fantastic place to start if you’re new to art journaling, or are just needing some inspiration to strike.

    […] Documenting your memories through art journaling might seem unusual, but it can be a great way capture the feelings, smells, sounds and ambiance of a day. Writing and photos can capture a lot, but paint, marks, splatters, doodles can augment that documentation. So many of my art journal pages are like a time capsule. When I see the page, I’m reminded of what was happening that day or the feelings I had. I love making art journal pages like these, and also ones that incorporate photos and journaling to go with. This can also be a great way to get kids documenting their lives too!
