Art Journaling Month 2015 with Jen


Art Journaling Banner 1

Mou started the challenge this month that coincides with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft's Art Journaling month. I also encourage you to start your own Art Journal this month.  Like the designers of Design Memory Craft, choose an inspiration piece and choose a journal. Based on the inspiration, start working on your art journal. You can keep working on your journal throughout the month and beyond. Share with us your inspiration piece and the art journal you have picked by leaving comments to this post with your links.


We are using the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Square Journal Board. You are free to choose your own favorite journal. 

For my journal inspiration, I was inspired by this photo from Tuscany, Italy.  I went there with my husband in the summer of 2011 and it was a trip of a lifetime!  I decided to create a short journal about my favorite photos from that trip.   This photo was not taken by me but I found it while looking at Pinterest and it took me right back to my trip!

I started my journal with some fun tissue papers and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium.



For several of my pages, I adhered papers to the journal to prepare them for further embellishment.

I started my pages with these papers not because of what is printed on them, but rather the colors that they provide that reminded me of Italy.  I will be adding more details and colors to the pages too and will share my progress each week on Tuesdays.  I'll be adding many more mediums and textures to this as well!

I'd like this journal to reflect the colors and textures of Tuscany, Italy as I remember them from my trip there.  I have so many photos but I want to showcase my favorites through this journey.
