Art Journal Prompt: I go to nature

Nature Art Journal Prompt

Lately I’ve been working in my Mini Binder Art Journal a lot.  In it I’ve just been playing in any way I feel like each day.  I love the freedom of the being able to add in any kind of paper I like.

It’s also inspired me to think about my layout in a different way.  For example, I made this 2 page layout in my regular art journal.

This is pretty normal for me.  I like doing 2 page spreads.

But I used the same prompt in a different way in my Mini Binder Art Journal.

I decided to use a Project Life card to write the quote.  Originally I was going to place it on the page with the deer image.  But it just didn’t seem to work.

Then I realized I could just place it in before the deer image, leaving the deer image as a full page.

On the back I did my journaling in response to the quote.

Art Journal Prompt:

I love this quote and you may want to use it for your own art journal:

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed and to have my senses put in order.”  ~John Burroughs

I simply took the first part of the quote and wrote my response to it.  “I go to nature . . .”

You could use any quote or poem this way.

Do you have a favorite quote?  How could you use it as a jumping off point in your art journal?
