I’m an avid traveler and love nothing more than immersing myself in the sights and sounds around me...from my backyard and neighborhood to unique cultures around the world!
It was on one of these trips that I had my big AH-HA moment about art journaling. Using art and journaling together to capture the special memories of my many trips – both at home and abroad - has always been rewarding to me.
Each new trip would start with the thrill of selecting a new sketchbook and the excited anticipation of the memories that I would be capturing between those smooth blank pages.
I noticed a common pattern of events...
I would be out and about, maybe at a cafe sketching and people would edge closer to watch, before saying: "I would LOVE to be able to do that!" Your personal journal is such a great keepsake to capture your memories in.
When I got chatting with them, I quickly realized that although people were saying they wanted to create art journals like mine, they didn’t feel they had the skills nor the confidence to do so.
When I dug a little deeper, I noticed they all shared the same worries and frustrations that were holding them back.
