How to Start an Art Journal Even If You’re Not An Artist

This post contains affiliate links.  Read full disclosure here.

If you’re reading this page, I’m going to assume you accepted my invitation to give art journaling a shot.  I promise, you’re going to love it.

Wondering why you should start an art journal? Here’s why.  In that post, I mentioned all the reasons I love art journaling.

To recap:

  • It’s easy to keep up with.
  • It encourages me to have a more positive outlook.
  • It helps me see prayers that have been answered.
  • It gives me a creative outlet.

Why I Art Journal, and Why You Should Too

I’m really not good at having a consistent schedule each day.  I’m more of a “fly by the seat of my pants” kind of girl. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I plan all sorts of stuff I’d like to do but I don’t have a solid list of events for each day. In that vein, I’m always promising myself that I’ll start doing x every day.

“I’m going to exercise 20 minutes every day.”

“I’m going to clean for 30 minutes every day.”

“I’ll scoop the litter box every single day.”

(I know, that last one really does to be done every single day. It just gets away from me sometimes… most of the time. Oops.)

Needless to say, many of these resolutions last a few days then fizzle out.  There’s one thing though, that almost without fail, I do every single day.

I journal.
