Since art journaling is a very personal form of art please keep in mind that all opinions, ways and advice that Kasia is sharing are simply very... hers, and you may feel that they will inspire you to find your own. Happy watching!

Books mentioned in the video:

- "Spilling open" by Sabrina Ward-Harrison

- "The Diary of Frida Kahlo"

- "The Notebooks" by Jean Michel Basquiat (we must warn you with this one - a big part of this book are blank pages from Basquiat's diary)

Video Summary

Art journaling is a form of expressing your emotions and feelings in a visual form either through painting, drawing, collage, and more. It's a personal way of reflecting on your life, troubles, and joys, while also playing around to practice without fear of mistakes. Tools you'll need depend on the techniques you use but the essentials to get started are a journal, markers, pens, pencils, scissors, glue, and a magazine. There are plenty of possible styles and methods of art journaling, but your own is the right way. People like Da Vinci, Picasso, and Van Gogh all kept art journals, and you can too! Express yourself, don't let anyone judge, and your journal is sure to bring you joy.
