Daily Art Journaling in December 2022

Daily Art Journaling in December 2022

I gave myself a challenge, an assignment to make a collage daily. For half the month I was ill (Covid, grrr). I did make collages some days, but on other days I had to skip.

Inspired by a friend who followed a course in art journaling, I too put some first steps on that path.

The main difference with the November collages is the text and the date stamp I added.

It’s great to see the art journal pages of others to get inspired. Look at my Instagram account and click the hashtag #artjournal or #artjournaling. (In the first comment of my posts).

My collages as art journaling in December

The difference between a journal and an art journal is the method. A journal usually consists of text, with at most a diagram or small drawing. In an art journal, the focus is on the image, which can consist of photos, drawings, or mementoes, with or without text.

I made my art journals with backgrounds of Gelli prints. This isn’t a requirement, of course. You can use anything or any technique you like. That’s what I like most about art journaling: there are no rules.

  1. Great, a new challenge!

    I only know one person that does Art Journaling (apart from you ), Lou Niestadt, and enjoy looking over her shoulder very much. So, I am off to instagram to peek into your new art journal.

    • Yes, challenges – personal or otherwise – are a great way to get into new habits. I looked up Lou Niestadt, but unfortunately, she left social media. Yet, if you are interested click on the hashtag #artjournal or #artjournaling and you will discover many more great examples. Instagram is great in that regard! ­čÖé

      Thanks for your comment, Kadanza, and have fun.
