Art Journal – A New Year Goal

This year one of my goals is to keep an art journal. As much as I love my blog it doesn’t give me the opportunity to sketch, cultivate quotes and tell stories in a way that I love. I thought that starting an art journal would open another door and give me another opportunity to fill another creative hole. As much as I enjoy my blog, I miss sketching. I used to draw fashion images and design dresses and I loved it.

I also get moments of creativity that I cant draw on my face or type out into a blog and so I thought this would be a great way to track my thoughts and feelings of the year in a creative way.

I always kept an art journal at school and I plan to fill this one with quotes I love, short stories and thoughts of the day as a way to keep me motivated throughout the year. I love the idea that as well as having a digital space, this will be something I can hold in my hands and flick through whenever the mood takes me.

I can carry it on train journeys to while away the hours, pack it on trips to document moments I’ve loved and have it with me so that I can fulfil my creative need whatever I’m doing.

Hopefully at some point I’ll get a polaroid so I can snap things and stick them in if the mood so takes me.

What’s one creative thing you’d love to do this year?

Until Next Time

    I'd love to start a journal, I just find it too hard to stick to haha. I have got a scrapbook though and I've been doing it now for 5 years! I find it so fun!

      I'm doing it on and off, but trying to pin point particular moments with quotes is quite nice! 🙂 xx
