visual journal

visual page from my art journal
I like to demonstrate how being artistic in a personal journal can be about the journey more than creating a perfect artwork. In art there is no right and wrong, and this is even more true for visual journals.
I am a firm believer in the connection of mind and body, and journaling consistently helps me along my path to health and wholeness because it serves as a safe place to figure out how I am feeling deep down.  Often disjointed and rambling, or full of doodles, my journals are messy and vibrant.

And my soapbox--------> Art journaling is for everyone, not just the artists.

You are so right! I love my journaling hour in the studio before I tackle the "big stuff". I never have a direction in mind, but the things I put down seem to come back to me when I later visit my larger panels. And it is always such a nice connection to myself to have that reflective hour...

I love your journal. I just saw this on pinterest and had to google you to get back to you. Glad you had your name on the photo. Beautiful journal entry and great blog. I used to be much better at art journaling and I want to get back to it.
