One of the cool features of an art journal or planner is it allows for a regular creative practice. This can improve the quality of life and allows more connection to one’s craft. A part of being creative and journaling is to modify your journal cover and pages to further express your aspirations. Today we are sharing two different styles of creative journals by Imagine artists Jennifer Vanderbeek and Kyriakos Pachadiroglou.

Jennifer’s Journal Cover

The cover’s base is a collage with torn pieces of map pages as well as craft paper pasted down with Creative Medium. Then shimmer is added with some sprays of Fireworks!. The earthy tones of Desert Sand, Potter’s Clay, and Rich Cocoa complement the craft paper and helped blend the edges of the maps into the background. The title of the journal is hand drawn with Memento markers and accented with white StazOn Studio Glaze.

This interior journal page is partially covered with white heavy structure paste with a light mix of the Brilliance Mediterranean Blue ink and then distressed with the same color using a wet tissue and few ink drops. To give a winter color mix, use the Sage VersaColor inkpad in random spots of the page. Use Silver Encore! inkpad to blend with blue ink giving a Silver Gray and a bit of a reflective effect on the white structure paste.
