It's Time for the March edition of the Art Journaling Chat!
Are you interested in learning about digital Art Journaling or wondering what the fuss is all about? Excited about the layouts you've already created and anxious to make more? Join Marilyn (MariJ) and Jody (Jode2771) in the chat room today, Monday, March 17th at 9 pm ET for an Art Journaling Chat and Challenge.
During the chat we will discuss and review the basics of Art Journaling and provide a prompt to start your layout. We will also talk about tips for completing your page. Jode and I will post our layouts right before the chat and update this thread afterwards with the new layout prompt and any suggestions or points we discussed.
Come join the fun, talk about ideas and try an Art Journaling page! Hope to see you there!
PLEASE NOTE: We are conscious that ScrapGirls live in all parts of the globe, so our aim is to alternate months and times. So while this is an evening ET chat, (therefore morning for some members) next month we will schedule an early ET Chat in order to make it easier for others.
During the chat, we discussed "basics" of Art Journaling and how it is like keeping a written journal except it's made of art not words. Art Journaling pages are usually photoless and may use symbols along with words or phrases to express your thoughts. For example, you can use a cartoon little girl to represent yourself or a heart to show love or maybe even a vivid, busy background to show excitement.
Last month we focused on the journaling on your page, this month we discussed that Art Journaling pages are PERSONAL to you, so often feelings are involved. We talked about the feelings that color can bring up in you and how to scrap and write about that. You can even write a poem to illustrated your words!
This month's layout PROMPT is:
"Pretend you are a color. You can write AS that color or write IN that color! It does not have to be your favorite color, just one you'd like to explore in an Art Journaling page.
You may want to think about what that color means to you or how it makes you feel. You can also write about or share stories and/or your thoughts about the different meanings or symbolism of color you are focusing on. You might even talk about how this color has had an impact on your life, what you like most about it or even WHY you are writing about or chose it."
Journal your thoughts on the color you picked, place it on your background and add symbols and words. When you are finished, please post your layout in the
for all of us to share. We can't wait to see what you create. Have fun!
