Introduction: My Journey into Art Journaling
For two years now, I've been on an exciting journey of journaling. It all started when I came across a post on Instagram that showed a journal spread decorated with lots of creative stuff. That's when I realised that journaling is more than just writing down thoughts – it's a way to express yourself with art and creativity. I began by taking a small diary from my dad's desk and using random things around the house to get creative. Even though my early tries didn't look that great, I felt so happy just making things.
As time went on, I started getting supplies to make my spreads look better and save time searching for materials. My journaling adventure became a mix of different styles, with drawings, doodles, washi tapes, scrap papers, and stickers filling my pages. It's hard to put a single definition on what an art journal is, because it's different for everyone and shows off their unique creative ideas.
I want to share my top five must-have supplies that I've found through my own journey. Links in titles below to find similar products on Kooshlee Store!
