Art Journaling...just me!

Journals have always been very popular. Remember back to your teen and pre-teen years when you had the journal with the little lock on it (that you thought no one could ever get in to...I mean, it had a lock on it, right?!)? Even scrapbooking {well heck, this blog!} is journaling. Visual journaling, I guess.
Well, a new {to me, at least} trend right now is Art Journals. These have also probably been around for eons, but they were probably just called 'sketch pads' until now. Also new to me is my very first art journal. I picked it up at Hobby Lobby tonight (it was on clearance for $2!).
Fair warning number one: I can't draw. Really, at all. I'm pretty horrible at it.
Fair warning number two: be kind. Like it says, this is me.

Here's my first entry:

I have aspirations for this book...here's hoping I can live up to my own visions :)


  1. Erin, I love it! Makes me think maybe I could do that, too! And I can't draw either! :O)

  2. Looks great. I'm ever so jealous. I love to look at other peoples journal!!! Never take time to do one myself!!

  3. Erin, I think this is charming--and part of the purpose of an art journal can be to explore art, so hey, go for more drawing, you're off to a great start!


  4. Looks great! I have done a few pages in art journal, I want to try more. I am a new follower, please stop my blog and follow me too. Kim :)
