An art journal is a great way to grow as an artist since it is the artist's personal place to play with techniques, develop new skills, and record thoughts and memories. However, getting started is usually the hardest part. At Zinnia, we help you dive right in by simply using an existing sketch book or by creating a unique journal from an altered board book. Texturing the pages is also part of the fun and the perfect way to break in your new, inspiring art journal.
