Part of the joy of art journaling is the freedom to work in lots of media. Yesterday I hung 3 large sheets of watercolor paper on the wall, and put on some awesome energetic music (A Cirque Du Soleil soundtrack from the library) and just let myself have fun with paint. After they dried, I turned them over and painted the backs.
I can now tear up these sheets to use as covers or pages in journals.
I also scanned them to use in my collage work.
Some of them came out a bit muddy, but others just sing with joy! WooHoo!
So if you feel stuck, get out some paint, put on some music, and have some fun splashing some color on paper.
Color Therapy = awesome.
