Art Journal - Jane Davenport Blog — Jane Davenport Blog “The Journal is a workbook and playground. And it is also just for me. I’m the audience.” Roz Stendahl “Art journaling is about the creative process of pulling together colour, words and images as you wish on one page. Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow It’s a mix of diary, travel memoir, autobiography, art therapist, visual diary, notebook, scrapbook and sketchbook….plus more… It’s a place, YOUR space, to record and work through your life experience in images, words, colours and collage. There is a wonderful and growing community of people around the world who keep an ‘Art Journal‘.

I journal everyday…sometimes a little, sometimes alot. I know the difference keeping an Art Journal has made in my life. The Institute of Cute, is dedicated to the very best supplies for Art Journals. You can start journaling today
