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?
