This past 12 months has been the most challenging time of my life so far. And I know I say this whenever something really big happens, but its almost like the bar is raised with every challenge in my life which really leaves me wondering what the Lord wants me to learn from this…but that’s another blog post altogether.
I have been playing around with mixed media for almost two years now (see my story about how I ‘got into’ mixed media here). Most of the art I have made so far was been made for friends and family and given away. I wanted something for myself now and seeing as did not have the space for a collection of canvasses I decided art journaling was a good way to have a personal collection of my mixed media art. Going back to what I said about challenging times in my life right now, I also needed something that would work as a bit of a pick me up on ‘those’ days!!
A friend sends out a quote for the day each morning to a group of us on WhatsApp and a lot of times those quotes are almost tailored to what my thoughts are or the happening in my life at that moment. So I decided to make some of those quotes the foundation of my journal pages.
Other random thoughts, pages by other journalers I follow online and life experiences form the rest of my journal.
If you have a quote to share please leave me a comment below. This page will also talk about the ‘business’ of art journaling. i.e techniques, supplies, artist I follow etc. Join me on this journey.
