Do you have those days when you just can’t get a page started? Perhaps you are wanting to create but you just don’t know what and the indecision is leading to procrastination and no art journal pages? Oh I know that one well! Or maybe you just need a quick way to start some art journal pages but you are not sure what. Well, I am here to help as today I have 12 tips for starting your art journal pages in a expressive and fearless way to cut down on indecision and procrastination and to get you making art!
So these are perfect for warm up exercises when you have a long session ahead or for getting art done in those few minutes you can spare today.

As always I have all the products listed below the video, and there aren’t many this time as you don’t need much for these exercises. Plus there are some close up pictures of some of the pages I made to demonstrate the tips, so take a look at them too for some lovely paint details!
