Art journals can come in many shapes, sizes, colors, and styles because each is an expression of the “artist” and everyone is unique. Today I’m sharing with you a few images of visual journals from some amazing women, loosely categorized by the dominant feature on the page.
Of course, this is by no means a complete list of styles that are out there, and you can see how even those in the same “category” are vastly different from one another.

These images are not meant to be a reference to compare your journal pages to, but should be more of an inspiration to understanding that art journaling is interpreted differently by everyone. Art journaling is not defined by any certain “look”. There is no right or wrong way to go about it.
Whether you feel more comfortable writing with minimal color, or playing with layers of paint with minimal words, or perhaps a unique mixture that only you’ve come up with… it’s the right way for YOU.
