August Art Journal

I again embarked last month on an art journal every day. I usually try to work on some type of art – whether it’s working on paper or cloth every day, but I love the discipline of a page a day in my art journal.

Because I am a journal writer and want to make sure I check in with myself every day, each page included the weather (sunny, cloudy etc), how I was feeling that day, and something I was thankful for. Some days did include what was going on that day. Other pages were just different techniques I wanted to try.

So here are some of the pages from my August art journal. I made the outside cover from one of my paint cloths. For the inside of the cover I used a piece of my snow-dyed fabric. I added batting between the two fabrics and then did some free-motion stitching. That helped to make the cover more sturdy. I think next time I’ll make the cover using a stiff interfacing or even felt, instead of the batting.

To prevent paint from getting on the cover, I attached it to the pages after they were all completed.

Here’s my Summer stencil page I blogged about the other day.

What great fun! As I mentioned before, I love the discipline of making a page a day. Thanks for dropping by to see my art journal.
