Art Journaling | Covering Up the Journaling

After seeing the FUN image below in a magazine, I took time to write and create a page in one of my art journals. If you look closely, you can see that I began with some journaling in a brown marker, then got creative covering it up with Slick Stix Crayons, markers, a white gel pen and the dancers image.

I like this idea of having a place to journal, then covering it up with scribbles or other creative products. Sometimes I'll journal in one direction, then journal right over it in another direction.

The act of journaling, simply writing out my thoughts and feelings, has always been therapeutic for me. However, I haven't felt like using a regular lined journal lately, so I've adopted this format of writing, then creating an art journal page over it. In the example below, I used a hymnal page, gelatos, a Sharpie pen, and a couple of stamps over my journaling.

Do you create over your written journaling? What's your favorite technique or product to use?
