Art Journal Pages

This is a compilation of photos of my Art Journal pages without all the extra chatter.  Each picture will usually represent a one or two-page spread in one of my Art Journals, along with a link to the post in which it appeared.  The posts have more photos and information about the pages.

I’ve been terrible about posting when I work in my Art Journal. Let me try to get a bit more up-to-date.

“Bird” uses collage in the background and large bird image, and some watercolor and stenciling for the title and other details.

Bird Collage

Here are three different spreads from the same blog post. “Exercise 6” (go here for more photos and text).  It has some found paper ephemera and bits of textbook pages.

Exercise 6

This one, from the same post, is unfinished but worth sharing. I never named it but I think “Big Orange Flower” will do.

Bloom Where You're Planted

The third one from that post is a fun exercise of layers of doodles, very unstructured and free-form.

Finished Pages

Several pages with different word and pieces of words, folded create other words. See more here: Folded Pages.

Folding Pages in Art Journal

After a long spell of no time spent journaling, I had a few hours and a real itch to get my hands on these pages.  I went to my Art Journal board on Pinterest and found a spread I liked along with this great quote from John Muir.

Everybody needs...

Pages made up at Sea Ranch: this one is my birthday page: Dianne’s Creative Happy Life.

The other one is my Color Wheel page.

  1. I recently stumbled upon your blog while googling blackout poetry art images and this art journal thing has got my mind racing! I’m by no means artistic, but I look forward to exploring how creative I can be when I start art journaling in 2014. Thanks for the inspiration!
    Ps. I will also, now, follow your blog! 🙂
