Art Journal Pages

So I was going through my box of unfinished projects looking for things that I could take up to the cabin next week to work on.. and I found an art journal that I had started last summer (from Rachel's Steady Hands Faulty Heart class) and it seemed like the perfect thing to bring.

In fact, the last time I worked on it was up at the cabin (over a year ago). But in a fit of creative madness and extra time this weekend I decided to add a few new pages to it before I head off into the wilderness. I just love this book because I am using up so many scraps and photos that just don't seem to fit anywhere else.

So these were the pages I made inspired by the class:

And these are the new pages.

It is still in progress (pending me finding my sharpie... it's somewhere around here...)

Anyway, it's fun. Just to make things for me, and to play and make a mess. Good stuff. Art for art's sake. Art therapy. And thrifty too, since all I'm using is junk mail and scraps and photos that are rejects from other projects. ;)
Also have been reading the newest Artful Journaling by Somerset Memories. So nice to see some familiar art (hullo Dina and Glenda!). Love it.

I like very much the design aspect with the writings, the visual impact of white and black typography. I agree with you it is very important to create just for the pleasure. That is a way of keeping all its energy and its spontaneity.
