I tried testing the page of my art journal on how much watercolor and ink can it hold. I think I got carried away with the wash and doodles (hehe). I was trying to make a collage like page, and I hope it looks like one.
“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.”

It seems to me that many people art journal when they’re feeling down, and need a pick-me-up or a pep talk – which can be wonderfully therapeutic and help a lot. I believe that it is equally important to art journal on the days when we’re exuding confidence, fulfillment, happiness, inspiration and joy – if for no other reason, to remind ourselves on the low days that the good ones will come back around again. The cumulative nature of art journals gives us an easy way to send messages to our “future selves.”
