Everything means something


I've had this thought all day going round my head, this wondering. I love to art journal, and I love to,watch YouTube art journal videos. I am wondering, do others out there have to have everything on the page be meaningful in some way, or do you just put elements together?

For me, when I do a page, it all has meaning, every element, every color, everything. I work intuitively for the most part, but as I do it, it all has meaning. It sometimes means pages get stuck or take longer until I figure out what it needs.


Do your pages and elements always mean something or do you just create pages?

  1. For me, not everything in my art journal pages or my art work has a specific meaning. Like you, a lot of my work is meticulous in that each element to the art has meaning. I get stuck because I can’t correctly translate on paper what I feel. I can’t get the elements right. I feel they contradict one another so I get stuck until finally it comes to me. Those are the pieces I put up and let rest until I know what to do.

    Some of the art I do is free style, no intended meaning, those are easier to do. I find if I think too much about the piece it is harder to complete.
