Journal Pages.. before and after

It's interesting how writing can change the whole look of a collage.

This whole "art journaling" thing which has been a name coined for combining drawing and writing in a book format is very interesting.  It's like anything that can be turned into a market will be.  You can now buy "art journal" sketchbooks which are specifically designed for collaging, writing, painting.  (which the ones from Strathmore I must say are awesome.)  When artists started making artist trading cards, then a whole new market for that opened up, such as selling the blank cards, selling embellishments and papers and so forth.  It's just interesting.  I wonder what the next new fad will be in the mixed media art world.

Great pages! I like your composition, and my favorite part of looking at others' journals is to read the text they add to it! It's kind of like picking the tiny lock on a diary and peeking at some of the secrets within!:-)

I agree. Text is such a cool design element! I can't wait to see what the next trend is in the mixed media world! :)

Thanks. It is cool to see what other people write in their journals. The only problem is that I always write just a little bit vaguely so that any specific situation is not clearly written about (if it is a venting-type writing) because you never know who will see them!

The writing seems to take it to a different dimension. Cool thoughts on what might be the next fad? Who knows, but you are so right, suddenly journaling is the thing, maybe we should keep and eye on what publications Stampington kicks out, that should tell us he? xox Corrine
