My Top 5 Tips for Starting an Art Journal

Thought I would share another perspective for you beginning art journalers out there! Enjoy Mel’s Top Five tips for starting an art journal!

Mel's Art Journal

Good morning everyone! I typically enjoy sharing tutorials and pictures of my work here, but I wanted to mix it up a little bit by giving you my top five recommendations for starting an art journal. I think there are many people out there who would love to dip their toes into the mixed media waters but are afraid. They say to themselves “I can’t draw”, or “I don’t have the right supplies”, or “I don’t know where to start” etc.

1. LET GO OF YOUR FEAR AND HAVE FUN!
The most important thing to remember about an art journal, especially when starting out is that it’s a place to experiment and play. A place to try new techniques, make mistakes, try new products. There’s no pressure for perfection here. I’ve created some of the most beautiful, as well as the most hideous pages in my art journals! 🙂

I recently read this post listing 22 things that happy people do differently. It is a good list, and I found a few that I could stand to work on. What was also immediately obvious to me was that this is a list of things that God has been telling me to do all along! I am happiest when living fully into my design and purpose, and who would know what that is better than the One who created me? Enjoy the list, and… be happy!
