Sometimes I create in my craft room where I can get messy with the paint and fun stuff, but sometimes I want to be out with my dh and work in the living room. Any tips for how to art journal when you want to be neat?

First thing that comes to mind is to create backgrounds in advance when you're in the craft room. I don't know how you create pages but when you're with youre with your DH you only need some pens to doodle and write ove the backgrounds. If you collage, maybe have a box file with pre cut out images , to keep by your side. You only need some glue to stick them in. In short, do as much preparation in advance so you just stick and draw when in tidy mode.

I use allot of wax pastels that acts like water color. allot of color without the mess. Pens tend to be mess-free too, or stamps!
