A Look Back – Cool Stuff You May Have Missed 15

A Look Back – This time I’m looking at Art Journal Flip Through videos! I’ve been art journaling for years and have filled up quite a few. It’s kinda neat looking back through the old ones and seeing how my style has evolved. CLick on the links to visit the original posts and watch the videos.

A Look Back is a blog series to show you some projects and posts that you may have missed – sometimes going WAY back in the archive. I think it will be fun to revisit a few ideas that we haven’t seen for a while. I’m excited to see how a little look back might inspire something new in the future :)


First up is a Flip Through from way back in 2014. You can watch the video HERE and see what I was working on back then. There were definitely some grungy backgrounds that I still love to this day :)

 

The next one is a journal that began in late 2014 and wasn’t filled until 2017 – I was working in 4-5 journals at one time so they could take a while to fill. Check out the video HERE to see my style change over the years.

 

This one I began in 2015 and finished up in 2017 – I remember working on so many of these pages. You can watch the flip through HERE.

 

Now moving through time, this one I began in 2017 and finished in 2018. It spans the time when I traveled to Japan and I think you can see that influence in some of the pages. Watch the flip through HERE.

 

Finally I had this art journal from 2018 to 2019, so the stuff in here is still very fresh in my mind. Check out the video HERE


I hope you go back with me and watch some of these videos to see what I worked on through the years. And I hope it inspires you to look through your old art journals too. I think we can learn quite a bit by seeing where we’ve come from.


Please join me today, Friday April 17th at 12noon EST for one of my Facebook Live Kaffeeklatsch Get Together chats! I’ll be sharing a new painting and talking about some other things. Most importantly I love “seeing” all of you there and it gives me a sense of our wonderful creative community. Please come by and say Hi and let me know what you are up to :)

Art Journal Flip Through – March 2020

I wanted to share a little Flip Through video of my newly finished art journal. 

I keep about 4-5 journals at the same time so they are always filled with an eclectic mix. This one highlights some pages I made using my last batch of new stencil designs as well as some pages that you may recognize from some of my Online Workshops.

Do you keep several art journals at once or do you work through one at a time?

    Loved the journal flip through. I like the style you mostly used with this one. I keep several journals at a time also. Not all of them are art based. I love to create with words mostly. Happy March! Thanks for sharing!

Art Journal Flip Through – 09/2019

I wanted to share a little Flip Through video of my newly finished art journal. 

I keep about 4-5 journals at the same time so they are always filled with an eclectic mix. This one brings back some good memories (from just a few days ago lol) from the Stencilbop Challenge – the place to go if you need inspiration for using those stencils. Looks like there’s also some playing in there from my rubber stamp release this past spring – loved making patterns with those.

Do you keep more than 1 art journal? How quickly do you fill them up?

Art Journal Flip Through – 05/2019

I wanted to share a little Flip Through video of my newly finished art journal. I started this one in September 2018.

I keep about 4-5 journals at the same time. This is an art journal I made by hand, from start to finish. It’s something I’ve gotten more into and it’s a fun skill to learn. You can take my online workshop BYO Art Journal and start binding your own unique journals too.

Hope you enjoyed the flip through!

    I love looking over your shoulder while you flip through your journal.
    How did you film this? Do you put your camera on a tripod and angle it down?

    Loved it Nat!
    Be brave enough to let yourself be bad is a hard one for me…really need to let go of the need to do things “right”.

Art Journal Flip Through 3/2017

It’s been a while since I did an Art Journal Flip Through. I am keeping about 4-5 journals at the same time, sometimes I send one out to a publisher and then it takes a couple months before I get it back or I work in several at the same time – anyway- this one in the video started in late 2014 and I did the last page this March in 2017 and I think it is interesting to see how my style changed in one book.

I am having a hard time with some of the pages in the beginning – thinking “oh boy” – which I guess is normal when you look at older work- LOL. But I also see some things thinking “oh, I should do this again” .

Hope you enjoyed this- have a gorgeous day!
