Inspired by all the journaling I'm seeing on some blogs,
I bought myself a sketch pad from Wal Mart
and have been using it as an art journal.
I am finding it very therapeutic.
The hardest part is giving yourself the permission to
make a mark on the paper. Just go for it. If you don't
like it, tear it out and start again!
I haven't used anything more than markers and ink pads,
scrapbook paper and glue sticks.
There are no rules! I chose the quotes as the inspiration
for these two pages. It's a great place to start.
Even if you don't like your handwriting, it's okay because
your writing is very personal and uniquely You!
The one below was done using only colored Sharpies.
I just picked up one and started swirling!
It's a very freeing craft.
Someday I'd like to use some paint and get more creative.
I hope that you have found a satisfying way to enjoy
'There is only one of you in all time,
this expression is unique.
And if you block it, it will never exist through
any other medium and it will be lost.'
Wishing you much happiness!
