Have you ever tried art journaling? I started art journaling when I was a teenager. Only the term “art journal” wasn’t really well known back then. My art journals were (and still are) full of doodles, sketches, and writing. Maybe a little collage here and there. I’ve saved every single one over the years.

Art journaling is such a fun hobby, and so satisfying to create gorgeous art journal pages. Art journaling is fun for kids, too! Wondering how to get started art journaling? You can check out the post below for some tips.

Loving this gorgeous art journal background by @cattaleiiasoul. It reminds me of vintage wallpaper. Notice how the strip of tape on the left page perfectly balances the negative space in the photo on the right page.

4. Pretty textiles

This velvet ribbon is so delightful. Imagine giving an art journal like this as a Christmas gift! That’s what this art journal reminds me of: a lovely gift I want to receive. By @willa.wanders.

5. Division of space

One thing I love about these art journal pages by @rynwyrd is how the artist divided the space on the pages into 3 sections as a layout. It tells a story in a way that feels like reading a graphic novel. And I love the gloomy feel. It’s November in Maine for me at this moment in time, and this is our weather today.
