I have a confession to make: watching art journal flip throughs on YouTube is one of my favorite things, ever! I love seeing completed spreads from other art journalers; all the different styles and color combinations; the layout ideas; and a little bit of a talk on the page, when it was created, why…oh, it is so much fun!
So for this week’s art journal video, I decided to share a flip through of my moon journals from last year. I hope you enjoy!
Art journal flip through
In 2017, I decided to bind a journal for two years worth of new moon spreads. But in 2018, I decided to create a spread for every new and full moon. So I bound another art journal for all my full moon spreads for the year. That journal ended up with a lot more pages than I needed, so it became my art witchery journal! In addition to all the full moon spreads, I also created a lot of what I call art magick in this journal.
These pages are filled with personal symbolism, deep healing work, little bits of magick, and a whole lot of soul! Some of the pages may be familiar to you if you’ve been following along with my work.
One of my new moon pages was filmed for the Atomic Lotus ecourse. I shared a video and tips on painting loose watercolor portraits on the blog a few weeks ago. And I have one more of these spreads filmed and ready to share with you in the coming weeks.
I do hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my art journal. Do subscribe to my YouTube channel – I will be adding a new art journaling video every 2nd and 4th Saturday!

Before you go, tell me this: Which one of these was your favourite spread?
This is awesome! Me too, I love to watch how people create, I love to listen to their writing process, art process, and interpretation of Tarot/Oracle, how they reveal the meaning of the card. Thank you for sharing your journals they are beautiful, You’re peaking my interest in learning more about the moon cycles. <3
Yes, it’s really interesting to hear about how different people approach their creativity! There’s so much to think about and sometimes even things to add into your own creative practice from this sharing! I really love working with the moon. Happy exploring – and if you have any questions, do ask! I’d love to help in any way I can 🙂
How very beautiful – you and the art. Love the room!
Thank you!! ?
I too love watching flip through journals. Yours is so so beautiful. I just love the way you add textures and layers to your artworks. I can’t even figure out where to begin. Do you use rubber stamps as well in your art? Also what’s the material of the paper like? Is there a separate paper for mixed media or it can be same as acrylic or watercolor paper?
Thank you, Raj! You’re very kind!! I have some rubber stamps, but I can’t remember the last time I used them! I use stencils also very rarely. I use my own mark making and shapes most of the time. The paper in the first journal is 160 GSM paper (which I gesso before use); I used watercolour paper for thr second journal. You do get mixed media paper, but it’s very pricey in India, so I haven’t used it. These are the two paper types that I use most often and both work well for mixed media.
It was a treat for the eyes watching the video of your journal and getting immersed in your art work. It was lovely to see you as well 🙂
Oh, I’m so glad you enjoyed the look into my art journal! 🙂
