What is Art Journaling?

Barb Owen from HowtoGetCreative.com just uploaded a fantastic introductory video to her YouTube channel. It's all about describing what an art journal is. 

It's fantastic for beginners, sure, but it's also great for those of us that have been art journaling for a while. First off, we get to see some of her own art journals and her creativity and that alone can be enough of a jump off point to inspire us to create in new and different ways. Going back to the basics can allow us to be more free and expressive than we've been in recent times since we often view our art as a progression instead of a series of checkpoints with skills that we can revisit.

I've embedded her video. I hope you'll watch for yourself. Barb streams almost every Friday on YouTube live at 11:00 pacific time. She's often creating amazing things and there is a lively conversation from the FIBs (friends in the box).

Almost all of the past shows have been uploaded to her YouTube channel for folks to watch on their own time. If you're looking for new classes, I highly suggest you visit her website and see what she's offering. You won't be disappointed.
