One of the many things I love about art journaling is the community. It’s like, if you’re an art journaler and you meet another art journaler, you just get each other. And one of my favorite places to connect with this creative community is on Instagram. I’ve created the feed on my art journaling account to be almost 100% art journalers (with some illustrators, surface designers and other artists thrown in!) I want it to be a place I can go and be immediately inspired. I thought you might like the same kind of inspiration, so I put together this list of 20+ Art Journalers on Instagram. These art journalers create their pages with all kinds of styles and mediums, so no matter what you like personally, you’re bound to find someone to inspire you!

If you’re going to follow just one account on this list, I think @getmessyartjournal should be it! The ladies behind Get Messy (@laurenlikesblog + @cayleegrey) have really cultivated a tight art journaling community. And they journals they share are beautiful and diverse.
I’m inspired by @foxandhazel’s bold colors and fearless mark-making, and I think you will be, too!
I find @blaisejournals art journals so serene and lovely. (And who can resist those chubby baby hands and feet?!)
I mentioned @cayleegrey earlier as one of the women behind Get Messy Art Journal, but her journals are so lovely and minimal, I wanted to be sure and share her Instagram feed, too!
I think @whoisladywindmere has such a cool, natural style. And if you like her style, you should definitely check out her Etsy shop, too.)
If you fall in love with @create.andlove’s work like I did, you might also want to subscribe to her channel on YouTube, because her videos are seriously dreamy.
I love the loose, almost abstract bonticals in @juliehamiltoncreative’s art journals.
I don’t personally know anyone on this list, but sometimes you can really tell a lot about a person by their art journals, and based on that alone, I’m willing to bet that @sasha_zeen is a truly lovely person.
Not only does @linneasnotebook have a lovely style but she uses Traveler’s Notebooks and it really helps her cultivate her own distinct style.
So @thedailywriting is actually a page that features art journals (and bujo’s, etc.), like this spread by @bunnymdiary. While they do lean towards a certain aesthetic, it’s a great way to see tons of different art journalers on Instagram.
It’s cool to see how much personality can be infused using mostly neutrals, like @thosewithwords does!
@thehandcraftedstory creates her art journals digitally… and it’s so fun because she also shares videos of her process with each spread. She also has a delightful Etsy shop.
Self-described “Vienna based journaler and artist // trying to capture life with ink and paper” @halloalice3 creates lovely art journal pages.
@inspiringjournals is another account that features lots of different art journalers. This post with @rehamcihan’s journal got over 7400+ likes!
A prolific and beautiful art journaler, you’re sure to find inspiration from @megjournals.
Dubbed “The Hall of Journal Fame” @thepalepaper is another account that shares some of the most lovely art journals (as well as bullet journal inspo, too!), like this sweet entry from @journalby.em.
Not only does @blushandmay have the sweetest Instagram account, but she also has an Etsy shop where you can buy her printable illustrations for your own art and/or bullet journals, as well as art for your walls.
A combination of drawings, collage, journal entries and more make @mereljournals someone you’ll love to follow, not just on Instagram, but on YouTube. too.
Soft and light is the best way I can describe @amochichi’s journaling style. So precious, I adore it!
One final account that shares the work of other art journalers pages, @pretty.journals curates a diverse collection, like this spread from @cecejournals.
And last but (hopefully!) not least, I hope you’ll consider following me on Instagram @joyfulartjournaling, as well!
