Why journal?

My mum, who isnt known for her artistic tendencies , asked me why I have taken up art journaling.

My mum has never drawn, she doesn’t really share how she feels, whereas I do. Herein lies the reason why i like to journal:

  • I enjoy it, it helps me gather my thoughts and solidify how I feel.
  • It helps me make sense of my world.
  • It is like a meditation for me
  • It brings colour into my life, and as a colour therapist, that’s important to me.
  • It stretches my mind and imaginationĀ 
  • It makes me look at the world in a new way
  • It makes life fun!
So, I need to ask… why do you journal? If you don’t, what do you do instead? id love to know! šŸ™‚Ā

Here is my warm up exercise:

I have had very positive reviews of this, on facebook. One lady even wanted it!!!! im really pleased with it, and it looks better in person (something I never thought id say).

Today, Reg has bought me some new brushes and different acrylic colours. so that is really good. Now I have the right shapes to work with. I just have to get a flower stencil, but I might use what I have because I can’t afford to go mad šŸ™‚

Oh and I got to wear my red boots today – its colder and winter is on the way šŸ™‚
