An art journal is a journal or diary that has a strong visual element to it, an expression of your artistic creativity and imagination, not filled only with words like a traditional journal. It's a journal for using your art to express your memories, dreams, and thoughts. How you create the images, and what type of imagery you make, is entirely a matter of personal choice. There are no rules. You can paint or draw, use pen and ink, photos, collage, doodle, stickers... anything and everything.
An Art Journal is just a journal in which you record anything you like in a creative way. Art Journaling is all about the process. In an Art Journal you can express a lot of experiences and emotions. You can use paint, colors, images, words, pictures, leaves, papers, etc. Anything goes in an art Journal. You can use it as an outlet to express your emotions and then cover them with paint or paper.
You can use it to record events, to gather stuff you like, you can even use it to express how empty of ideas you are at the moment. You don't have to keep an art journal to be an artist, but artists all over the world have use art journals as a tool to express and record their artistic minds.
