Hi~

I just joined the forum and looking forward to participating. This morning I followed a link on Quietfire Designs to a new blog focusing on poetry and art journaling. I've just recently begun writing again, and I really need a "kick-start" to get back into art journaling, so the timing is great. You don't even have to write poetry yourself...you can illustrate other peoples' poems. Thought I'd share the link in case some of you might also be interested:

The link shows wrong when I post. It is supposed to be poetry journal monthly (all one word).

I've been watching a workshop about making a fan-based art journal by Tangie Baxter. I say watching, because I've never actually done anything with real paints and whatnot, but it's sure inspiring me to actually give it a try! Tangie makes it look so easy too.

I like the idea of using poetry with art journaling. Seems like the two would work really well together.

I haven't started art journaling yet, though I really want to, and I never thought of adding poetry. I haven't written a poem in such a long time...I might give that a try! Thanks for the idea!

I usually ramble on about nothing or use quotes. Paper, paint, a sharpie or Pitt pen, and I'm happy.

I like the idea of poetry too.  I've been using some of my favorite quotes, but I used to write poetry a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.  I might just try it again.  Thanks for the idea.

Instead of poetry, I mostly use scripture, hymns, and quotes from Dr. Henrietta Mears.

I subscribe to Garrison Keillor's Poem a Day and I save some that seem perfect for a photo I already have or that remind me of something I'd like to scrap so that I can use them on a scrapbook page -- since starting art journaling, it's also something I'd like to incorporate.

I struggle with the purpose. I've made a couple of small art journals created through classes. We were given prompts everyday after completing the background. I didn't quite get it. Or maybe it was the prompts that didn't resonate. Maybe I just need to give the art journal a personal twist. I loved making the backgrounds and will use these techniques on scrapbook pages.

What are you using your art journal for? Or what expectations do you have for the resulting pages?
