For this year, I abandoned the traveler's notebook format and prepared a similar one in size and style, only the inserts are sewn to the cover.

2018 Art Journal: September to December

I finally finished my last year's journal. I really hate not finishing projects but I haven't been art journalling for quite some time. I had some design team obligations, so I forced myself to do some art but other than that, my motivation was very low.

2018 Art journal: May to August

Here is the second part of my 2018 art journal adventure. As I mentioned in my previous post, I was loosely following the Documented Life Project prompts posted on the "Life Documented 2018".

2018 Art journal: January to April

This year, like the year before, I chose to do my art journal in a traveler's notebook style.

I made a cover, prepared three journals (one for four months). One change was that I created my art journals with pockets (I took ATC page protectors and cut them to fit the journal).
