Journaling by 5’s Art Journal Challenge: part 1

Hi guys! So today I’m starting a new little video series based off of Shannon Green’s Journaling by 5’s activity! You can check out her channel here.

So basically this challenge is to create an entire art journal by 5’s. There are 5 steps, and each step is done in 15 minutes (covering 20 pages). You go through all the steps until you have a finished art journal!

The steps:

1. paint/ink
2.collage/recycled/found object
3. stamps/stencils
4. words/images/drawings
5. pen/pencil

You have 20 pages, and 15 minutes for each step. It’s hectic but fun, and the goal of it is to free yourself and just get something down on the pages that you can work with instead of staring at a blank white page and over-analyzing what you want to do.

So this is the first step, 15 minutes to cover all 20 pages in paint/ink!

Let me know what you think in a comment below, I hope you enjoy, and thanks for watching!
