Keeping a journal is a private dialogue with oneself in pursuit of self-discovery and an archiving of one’s daily life. When you combine the written word with doodling, painting, or pasting in memorabilia you are creating an “Art Journal”. Creative Journaling (sometimes called Art Journaling) unites our love of writing with a visual poetry of images and offers a dynamic new venue for self-expression. This kit from Faber-Castell combines the best materials with 12 big step-by-step illustrated instruction cards. Four Art GRIP Aquarelle Pencils, three PITT artist pens (black extra superfine nib, sepia superfine nib, gray brush nib), one graphite pencil, a sharpener and eraser, plus 15 sheets of decorative papers, nine illustration boards, gesso, craft glue and other materials. 35 pieces total.
