I love Art Journaling.

 I love to journal...i love to talk about it, write about it, teach about it, learn about it...everything! Even when I paint big and on canvas I am still journaling...using a little bit of me and my soul in each piece, but allowing the viewer to decide what he sees for himself as well.
 I'm teaching a class at Arts on Main on the 12th and 26th of January. It's called Journaling Inward: Adventures in Art Journaling and I'm really excited about it!
The pic above is just a sample of some of the journals I use on a daily basis.

  Journaling to me is so soothing, so freeing. I don't have to care about anything other than making me happy. Expressing my self fully for just me. And even if I plan to show others what I'm working on, their judgement doesn't bother me, because it's my soul, on paper! It's a constant work in process!!! It's a visual  way of me meditating and figuring me out. It's so MUCH it's hard to emphasize just how amazing it is for me, and my sanity!

Here's a tiny list of some of the amazing journalers out there that I <3
