Art Journal #3

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I'm back to art journaling! 
I love art journaling.  I'm on journal #3 since I first decided to dive into this art form.  

One of my favorite places to find journal inspiration is Pinterest! You can find my "journal" board here.  As far as materials I use, I tend to go for saved scraps from the mail or magazines, cute tape, photographs, paint, and a few store-bought papers and embellishments.  
My journals previously have been a Smash journal, and a homemade one from cardboard pieces.  The design of the pages were mainly collaged elements.  For this new journal I've been enjoying using collage, photographs, and watercolors/acrylic paints on the pages.  Adding in the paint element has been super fun for me.  From what I can tell, it seems like most people use mainly just paper elements and photographs or paint. Not necessarily both.  But I like both, so here it goes! 

This is a little work in progress view of a page I'm in love with and don't want to ruin by working too quickly.  My craft room/studio stays very messy while I work on my journal and I like that!  It's easy to pick right back up where I left off.  

So how about you? Do you art journal?  Why or why not?
