September is my month off from S4H, so I don't have a design team project of my own to share with you this time. Instead, as I always do when I have a month off, I want to share with you a few of my latest art journal pages.
I was thinking recently about the different ways that people use art journals. Do you keep an art journal? If so, how do you use it? Do you write your thoughts in it, like this...?
Or do you just use it as a place to experiment and practice techniques, like this...?
|Supplies: paper from Lily Bee; stickers from October Afternoon; ribbon from Scrapbook Fantasies; thread from DMC; denim scrap & button from old clothing; vintage twine from my husband's grandmother. :)|
Or do you just have fun with it, like this...?
|Supplies: all paper & stickers from Bo Bunny; pens from Zig.|
The turkey page has a fold-out flap, which reveals journaling and a second photo (see below).

So, how do you use your art journal? I look forward to hearing from all of you art journalers out there!
Whether you are an art journaler, a card maker, an altered artist, or a scrapbooker, if you make something that includes a pop tab [soda can clip] this month, don't forget to upload it to Scrap for Help!
P.S. These art journal pages are green because: they use older stash (the Bo Bunny papers & stickers), recycled tickets, and fabric & a button from old clothing.
