Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you are having a glorious day! It’s a beautiful day on the west coast – I can’t wait to get out for a bit of sunshine today.
Have you ever art journaled grid style before? I think it’s a wonderful way to art journal if you are stuck for ideas and don’t know what to do.
If you really want to get blown away with lots of Grid style ideas go visit this Pinterest board. You will be in heaven for sure! There are many ways to art journal grid style – you could simply divide your paper into equal squares and use that as a base. I decided on a random grid style – (see the above sketch) and then went for it.
You can add words, patterns, writing, images that speak to you – journaling this way is fun and non-threatening!
I was inspired by Pam Garrison`s grid which came in my Somerset Studios magazine – i believe it was an old magazine (can`t recall which issue). I love Pam`s whimsical and loose style – very inspiring.
I decided to do my own version with micron pens, copic markers and pencil crayons. I spent two blissful hours meditatively drawing and colouring to my heart`s content. The next time you feel blocked about what kind of journal page to create why not try a grid style art journal page.
I am using some of the images in this grid as borders for my journal pages as well. All you have to do is either photo copy or print off colour copies of your page and voila – instant personal collage material!
See you on Friday!
Love, Violette xo
