    Seeing exciting new ideas in Somerset’s Art Journaling magazine is my favorite thing about it. Never fails to inspire more creative ideas and "must do" things. It really is an adventure to read and enjoy.

    I try to pick up all of Somersets’ publications when I can! Art Journaling is always an absolute must, just has so much inspiration, ideas, etc. For me personally, it allows me to think outside-the-box of my own mind, by seeing what other people are doing, opens me up for new ideas/opportunities/techniques. Also helps jump start my creativity on those days when I’m feeling down, or the juices aren’t flowing freely in my head. Absolutely lovely magazine!

    I love to just page through it. I get so much inspiration from the magazine. I may not make or do things the way they are presented, but I look at the photos of the pieces and pull things into my own interpretation.

    I actually haven’t had the chance to read one-they are always sold out, which I am guessing means it’s wildly inspiring!

    I love so many things about Art Journaling Magazine! First of all, I love to see all the amazing journal pages that are being created, I love the stories behind the journaling – the process, the emotions, the techniques. I love the question and answer columns by the contributing artists scattered throughout the magazine.
    I’ve kept all the old issues that I’ve purchased over the years and it is fun to go back and re-read them or just look through the pictures for inspiration!

    I have actually never gotten to read a copy–it’s been on my wishlist for a LONG time and I’ve been wanting to check out some issues but haven’t had a chance yet. But it looks so wonderful…so I guess my favorite part is the tantalizing covers 😀

    What is not to love about Art Journaling Magazine? Inspiration times a trillion! Love seeing all the amazing creations that just make me want to play all day!

    i used to be into writing more than art. my older sister was always the artist of the family and i would just watch her techniques and take art classes in high school with no true aim.
    now that i am older and work at a arts and crafts store, i have fallen head over heels for the papercrafts (among many other crafts).
    i have problems keeping awake these days (being stationary puts me right out. reading, knitting, watching a movie and i am out) but when i sit at my craft station in the corner of my room, i am wide awake and using some part of my brain that rebels against my dreaded fatigue!
    i get to create, which i find very important in life, and it combines my first love of writing with my new flame, journaling.
    i joined dlp this year and it has changed my life 🙂 congrats! i love somerset magazines ! it’s how i found you ladies when roben was published in the somerset memories autumn 2014 edition. then i impatiently waited for the new year to join the dlp!
