I wanted to do something like this, but then also felt like I would need a lot of time for drawing or would go through art materials fast. I also don't have thick paper that I would want to draw on, the only paper I have is pretty thin. And then I came up with the idea of doing it on the computer. I could make digital drawings, or just upload pictures of drawings. And then I thought of where I would keep this. I looked at apps for journaling, but some of them are just plain and not what I was looking for. I wanted some cool looking app that I could submit art to, decorate the page, and type something as well. So I decided I am just going to use this blogger site I made and have creative journal pics put on here as well under a certain tag. I have a few journal prompt ideas already. I have a list of stuff in case I blank and don't know what to draw. Some stuff will be journal prompts, stuff about my day, etc.

So I have seen pictures online of art journals, and thought it looked really cool and I wanted to do something like that. You can write about your day, or if you don't know what to write about, there are journal prompts. Examples are "pick a quote and design an art journal page around it." or "journal about things that you love." You could draw pictures of them, paint, etc. These pictures online inspired me to want to try it, just fill up a journal with artwork and make it pretty. Here are a few examples I saw online.
