this one. It just looks like such a creative and pretty way to express yourself. I don't feel like there is as much pressure as there is if you were to paint a picture. Paintings require a lot of mental preparation whereas art journaling is a lot more laid back and improvisational. You get an idea of what you want to do and go with it. I love that with mixed media art, you can incorporate everyday mundane things like masking tape. It makes me feel like a little kid in art class. It is pretty amazing really what you can do with things like construction paper, watercolors, glue, stamps, torn pieces of paper, ball point pens, and tape. This is my first art journal page. I'm pretty pleased with the results. I can't wait to do more!!
