Three years ago (Really, has it been that long ago?) I started posting Art Journaling Ideas every month, and somewhere around mid-year, life must have gotten a bit crazy, because the last one I posted was June’s! A few weeks ago, those old posts were resurrected on Pinterest, and we’ve had quite a few e-mails asking where the other half of the year was! I pulled out the file, and found that November still needed some work, so on our way to church and back I finished it up, and it’s ready to post…
We actually started the art journaling project back in the late 1990’s, and the children of several online friends tested out the journal ideas and sent me their drawings! I was originally going to organize all these into a book… and still may someday put it together into an easily downloadable ebook… but for the time being, you can find all the art journaling posts HERE or by clicking on the “Art Journaling” category on the right sidebar!
I could only find one submission for November…

Below are the September and October Journal Pages…
…July and August need a LOT of work, so hopefully next summer!
December is coming soon!
Here’s September’s page…
P.S. You know how I’m always saying
“Practice, Practice, Practice”
when it comes to drawing?
Look at the difference between my November drawings
and my September and October drawings.

Draw lines, young man, many lines;
from memory or from nature –
it is in this way you will become a good artist.
