The Beginnings of an Art Journal

I have been wanting to start an art journal for a very long time. I just never got started. Finally one day on Pinterest I saw lots of other art journals. I just couldn't take it anymore and I had to start my own. I found lots of posts that had prompts or ideas of how to fill up your own art journal or bullet journal. (links at the bottom of the post)

My News


I am sorry that I haven't posted in so long. I have some news for you guys. I was recently offered a job at a summer camp that I have been wanting to work at since I was in third grade. I am very excited about this opportunity. Unfortunately, this means that I cannot continue to post during the summer.  This does mean, however, that in the fall this blog and my novel will be my job. So in the fall I will be back bigger and better than ever and I am looking forward to it. Thank you so much for all your support!

Zentangling - Part 1: Basic Tangling

Zentangling is a type of ink art that has been around for about a decade now. The idea between zentangling is to connect a series of patterns to make a bigger picture. It is a lot easier than it sounds. When it is really boiled down all you have to do is draw a shape, divide it up and fill it in with a fun pattern. But enough talking, let me show you some of my own drawings.

If you look at this pictures you can mostly see the sections of the images and the patterns that I used for each section. Here is an image that you can use to practice any patterns that you come up with. I know that this week was very basic but next week we will be going into more detail with some complex zentangling and what you can do with it. Plus, a surprise!! 

Add to the outline and zentangle. What will you make? Will it be a city scene? An airport? Show me what you created in the comments. Be creative!
