“Don’t Miss the Moment” Art Journal Process

I am a pretty creative person. I like to create when the feeling hits. But, as a blogger and a YouTube creator, I also have a schedule that I set for myself. Sometimes, the two don’t necessarily coincide. Such was the case this week when I was supposed to sit down and record an art journal process. You can see from the video linked below that I was able to overcome my uninspired start!

Sometimes when you are feeling uninspired, but still want (or need) to create, it’s best to lean on a medium or supply that you know and love. For me, that is acrylic paint. I love acrylic paint. I love the bold colors, and forgiving nature. I love how it layers nicely, and I love the freedom I feel when I just start slapping it down on a page! This was the perfect vehicle for me to conquer my art journal apathy!

The page actually ended up rather simple. No need to reinvent the wheel! I simply layered some of Jane Davenport’s beautiful acrylic paints on top of each other in a color scheme that was really pleasing to my eye. Add a gorgeous Jane Davenport stamp, a bit of stenciling, and the page really came together. Yes, it could probably have more added to it, but I am super pleased with my outcome!

What is your go-to medium when the creativity just isn’t flowing? Let me know in the comments below!

Keep it creative,

I'm a mom of 3 who loves all things creative! My current passion is bible journaling, a creative outlet that has really shaped my faith journey. I'm also excited about diving into some memory-keeping projects and dabbling in a bit of art journaling.

  1. I looove how this turned out! The way your wrote ‘moment,’ the contrasting shapes and patterns, the woman’s hair connecting the two pages… it’s wonderful. 🙂
    I love experimenting and trying out handlettering! It’s especially fun on a dry erase board, where I can quickly change something without going through many sheets of paper.
