A commonly asked question is “what do you put on the first page of your art journal?” I actually take the stress off of myself by always starting the first page the same way.
|The first page of every art journal says “art Journal by Miriam Schulman.” Kind of goofy, right? But why stress yourself out over a process that is supposed to relax you?
|Here you can see how I coordinated the colors in the “address” page with the first page. Creating the address page as a mixed media detail gave me a sense of completion and closure with my journal.
Do you want more ideas for your art journal?
