There are many different printable media options if you have an inkjet printer. Choose from white copy paper, sticker paper, card stock or my favorite, translucent, lightweight sketch paper.

Whatever you print these art images on, after you get everything cut out, it is fun to lay them out and see how they work together before you get set to make your craft or art.

HOW I USE PRINTABLE DIE CUT IMAGES IN MY ART JOURNAL:

Okay so, i'll admit, while i freely allow myself to embrace flipping the page when the background images aren't turning out, I do have a bit of a commitment issue once it gets past that part.

If i didn't push myself, I would just have an art journal full of painted backgrounds.

I am still working on the commitment, and to get over this hurdle temporarily, I have found that spreading out my images first using the cut-outs helps to finally commit to using the glue-stick on the die cuts!

Once that masking tape background was dry, I started picking and choosing through the printable images that I had already cut up from the evening before and tried to place out an appealing layout that would still allow me to journal on the page. 

USING RECYCLED MATERIALS IN YOUR ART JOURNAL

Isn't it nice that making art in a creative art journal can be just for you and just for the simple joy of personal self-expression? 

What I love most about my own new-ish journey into mixed media art-ing is the experimentation process.

My favorite part right now is creating unique backgrounds using a variety of fun, ordinary paper, printable images or recycled materials. 

What are your favorite recycled materials to use in your art journal?  I am always on the look-out for new and fun materials to play with!

A MIXED MEDIA BACKGROUND USING MASKING TAPE!

I recently experimented by covering two pages in my art journal | Feelings diary in cheapo masking tape from the dollar store. 

I painted over the masking tape by blending my favorite teal into an ochre yellow, getting subtle, but oh, so pretty greenish mix!

The result was unexpected, it turned out better than I imagined, aa little bit of texture added to the background for visual interest, and it was faster than waiting for a newly gessoed page to dry! 

I will use masking tape again some time in my art journal, next time, applying tape in different directions and seeing how it turns out.   That is the best part.

THE PROCESS OF EXPERIMENTING IN AN ART JOURNAL

Eventually all my art experiments work out, even if at first, they didn't go exactly as I envisioned when I set out painting.   

When the ugly stick strikes, I have FINALLY learned to embrace the process, gluing images overtop of the ugly part or flipping the page and going back to them to paint or scribble another day. 

It is these trials that keep me coming back to explore and I believe may be why I have so many different journals on the go at once! 

There isn't a limit is there? LOL
