Art Journaling on a budget

I'm going back slowly to art journal as my time allows, it's been a great help in my therapy. As a social work minor therapy is a "must" to those who takes it seriously. As my teacher used to say " you can't help people with their crap if you don't take care of your crap" so it helps tremendously and  I've missed it.
But my problem is that you can see tons of you tube videos of art journaling but usually people use so much stuff.
 I don't have space and I won't  buy not even close of the things I used to have because I know won't used it. So, I basically use watercolors, markers, pencils (crayola by the way) and  I intend to use some stamps and some stencils and most I will cut with my cricut . I intend to talk more about this in the summer when I will have some free time or till then as I can.
 Art Journaling doesn't have to be expensive nor full of techniques the objective here is to make you open yourself up and be true to yourself because it's YOUR ART JOURNAL.
Remember that most people that have elaborated and full of supplies art journal receive the product and therefore have to show them.

Or you can always do digital Art journaling

I like both but digital is more about the art the play and the paper is about the feelings I want to work on.
You can grab this girl HERE.
I will be back to post more about what I'm using in my paper art journal.

ArtJournal Page and FREE Download

I did many of these girls and you can use them digitally to create paper Art Journal or digital.
What I did with the outlines I have created I printed them in watercolor paper I cut it to 8.5 x 11 and printed with my laser printer because I wanted to paint with watercolor.
If you have inkjet print, print to a regular cardstock and color with markers as you wish or glue paper.
You can see all the free download here, I update often as I make them.

Captivated Vision it takes courage


I never thought this could happen but it did. I was so honored to see my name with fellow scrappers who I admire. The Spring issue of Somerset Digital Studio Magazine.
Digital Scrapbooking has allowed me to continue to document in the midst of the busy life I am right now and it's making my soul happy.

Art Journal She wants to change her story.

I'm having a lot of fun again playing with watercolors and pens, I don't have space or don't want to buy things as I used to have so my goal is to do art journals that are simple so a good watercolor set will do it and few stamps This is one I kept from the many I gave away. From Suzi Blue .
