Art Journal Ideas: Illustrate an Inspiring Thought

art journal prompts birds

Today’s art journal idea is a simple one.  When you have a happy thought, write it down, and then create an illustration to match.  You can also reverse it: illustrate a happy image that pops into your head, and then write down whatever words you think of  around it.  If you do this regularly, your journal will fill up with positive ideas and images, and looking back on old pages will be uplifting!  Perfect for days when you need a little boost.

Tips and photo from our guest contributor, Heidi Crabb:

Draw and cut out design templates (like birds and leaves). Use them to trace onto the nice paper.

Add your words of dreams and visions! Pencils first, them trace over with a pen or marker.

What will your first happy thought be?
