Art Journaling Resources

I found this nice resource for beginning art journalers. Its all text, no video's but if your are itching to start its a great resource. Even if you are a seasoned journaler you might find something new. It's called Aisling's Art Journals and you can find it here

Here is another fun source on creating texture for mixed media. Link

Here I was playing around with some fall colors in my altered book journal, I painted the background last week, added this tag I painted last year and some miscellaneous papers. I haven't decided if I am going to add something to the window or not. Then I added my trusty charcoal and oil pastel on the edges.

In this one I played with the same color scheme.  There were images on this page which I painted over, one of them remains and I like the fact that you can't really see what is going on in the picture. Sometimes its fun to just play with color and paper.


  1. What fun, Kate! I'm off to check the resources. Even though I've been art journaling for a while, I still consider myself a beginner.

    One of my favorite things I enjoy in your collages is when you take a picture from a magazine or photo and paint over it. I like how it looks and would never have thought of that.


  2. Thank you for sharing the links...on my way! :]

  3. Great pages and I love the autumn colors. You're right about playing with colors and paper. I love doing that.

    Thanks for the links. I'm off to check them out.

  4. Thank you Kate and Happy Thanksgiving, Mary

  5. Beautiful pages. I love the colors. The waterfall is really cool looking next to the the colors, It looks almost like a brush stroke. Hope your writing is going well and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
