What exactly is a brain dump? Well, on the days I have artist block because there’s far too many things on my mind it helps to write it all down somewhere. Sometimes I write it down inside my art journal and then I can create on other pages. And we’ll, if I don’t like it there I can always cover my words with a collage later. That’s the beautiful thing about collage and art. The things you can do are without limit.
Being an artist is great. It’s the one area in life where I don’t have to follow the rules and I can jot down, write down, or doodle anything I want in my journals. What do you do when you have artist block?
Here is a flip through for your inspiration.
A comment from Joyce Meyer ministries made my whole day. (JournalingArt on Instagram)
Dream big work with diligence and make dreams happen. A good life quote to meditate on for the next month. Add positive quotes and fun doodles with some collage art inside an art journal and have a photo memory book to look back on when you grow old. It will be fun one day to look through all my old art journals. What do you do with your old art journals?
She dreams more often than she sleeps. Jonny Ox
Creativity takes courage. Henri Matisse
The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination. Albert Einstein
Bright colors, doodling, and inspiring quotes fill my last pages of my journal for 2017.
The owl represents wisdom and the butterfly represents change and growth. Personal growth is important. Also important, taking authority over your thoughts, your words, and your life. Stay in His word and listen to positive words for a positive life. I always enjoy Joyce Meyer and her teaching.
Grow Old With Me
When I grow old, I want to do it with you by my side. God prepared my story long before I was born and he included you in my story. I am so thankful for a God who loves me so much to include such an amazing husband in my story. With you, my dear it makes our story a fairy tail with a fairy tail ending. He never promised it would be perfect and its not. But, it is close and that’s more than I could have wished. Thank you God for my husband and our time together in this life.
I love to mix my art journal with fun inspiring quotes, bible verses, and sometimes I add personal prayers to my art journal. Most of all I love adding color with various materials and some collage from old magazines. Most of the time I insert the date and add either something personal about my day or something I would like to use to encourage or inspire others like an inspirational quote. This particular page was made on a cool day in the early spring when I was in need of a warm vacation. It was officially declared spring and it snowed the same week here. Journaling with art helps promote good health and happiness, especially when winter seems to take longer than it should. What’s in your Molskine??
