Many moons ago, I took this course:
Two important things I learned were:
1) I am an artist.
2) I can journal anyway I wish.
As a child, I thought I wasn't good at art because, my drawings, paintings and sculptures didn't look like the teachers or other students.
Over time, even though I longed for art mediums, I told myself, "Why waste the money, you can't draw or paint."
As a teenager and then adult, I thought journaling meant filling pages and pages of a cool "Hemingway-like" looking bound book with thoughtful sentences.
I tried many times and started many, many, (no really) many journals...
that I eventually threw away.
I would write and write, but something was missing...
Because of Shannon's course, I am wiser.
I NOW know that my blog, full of thoughts and art (my pictures), is my public journal that I share with each of you beautiful people.
I also now have an art journal that I treasure.
It is my personal space, to capture my thoughts through writing as well as painting, doodling, drawing, and collaging.
This is my space where I work and journal.
These tools seem to be my favorite lately.
What's your avenue for expression?
