[I'm doing a series of posts on resources for digital art journalers and collage artists. This is the second post on digital shops which focus on art journaling; I'm beginning with shops I've used and been happy with.]
One Story Down does not bill itself as an art journal shop ("We add great NEW digital scrapbooking & crafting products to the shop every Friday!") but it sure has pulled some of my favorite art journaling designers in its so-far brief existence, including the Ardent Sparrow, Sarah Barber, Sissy Sparrows, and Paula Kesselring (whom I've written about previously.) There are several other designers as well, but these are the ones with which I'm familiar.
This site is unique in its design, leaning toward clean and uncluttered, unlike some digital scrapbooking shops and forums that lean rather the other way. The forum is notable for the lack of blinkies in signatures, which I find refreshing. It's a new forum, but promising, and I see from a blog post that they are beginning an Art Journaling Workshop in the forum tomorrow, August 10th:
No recommendation from me yet, but I plan to participate and expect to enjoy it.
Here are a few kits in the shop I am currently coveting (click on the name to go to the blog; click on the image to go to the shop):

This is definitely a shop worth keeping an eye on, and maybe I'll see you in the forum tomorrow?
