Art Journalling with Catie

I'm sharing an art journal page that I've just completed, for inspiration this week.  This page actually started out in my mind as a spacey-night-starry type scene... but that didn't eventuate, and as I added more layers, this is what evolved.

I've used some really fun products on this, such as Faber Castell Whipped Spackle, Shimmerz texture paste, stencils, masks, mists, inks and more.

I found working on this so therapeutic, as there was no real outcome in mind... I was just creating for the sake of creating, and I think that that is one of the beauties of art journaling... you can just let yourself go and go wherever your art takes you.

I chose this quote from Sylvia Plath: "The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt", as when I start at a blank art journal page and try to picture what I'm going to put down on it, it can actually be a bit daunting.  I've found that if I just shut off the thinking part of my brain, and let the creative part play with different techniques, and materials, and textures, I actually end up with something I rather like.

I hope you enjoy this page and the close ups of the page below :)
Thanks for looking.  Catie x


  1. Oh I agree art journal pages are very therapeutic! And unpredictable and can just take off in any direction! These pages look amazing, lots of fun by the look of all the texture!
