So - how does this work really relate to art journalling? That's where it all started.
I started creating art in my art journal. I wanted the freedom of self expression without expectations - other than my own. I use my art journal as a journal of artistic attempts, sketches, try-outs, ideas, colour play, line and gesture drawing. Occassionally I get a little reflective and throw in some words too, and make a 'finished' page. But not always. Not even often. But that's what I love about everything to do with Art Journals. There is no one way. And they can be used for so many purposes. Mixing it up, altering books, playing. It's all good stuff.
(Oh, and by the way, I think I could become addicted to paint sticks. Sooooo easy to use & creamy, even if I am a little messy with them!)
