THE TANTALISING HANDMADE PAGE!

As a practicing artist and art teacher, this is what I know: within all of us there is a silent language that reveals the truth of our thoughts, feelings and emotions far more fluently than words can alone. An art journal ( or visual journal) can be a wonderful place to play, experiment and articulate those thoughts and our daily experiences, without words and without it taking the shape of a  conventional diary. It can grow into a place to source new ideas, grow inspirations, and play with the dreams that flow in and out of our conscious or even sub conscious mind.

Our captivation with Facebook is testament to the fact that we are quite driven to want to document our daily lives, thoughts and hobbies, an art journal can become a place where we do just that:  document our inner world and yet we dialogue with our selves rather than an outer audience.

The great thing about any kind of Art Journaling is that I can dabble and experiment ! And I can Art journal anywhere….in fact I do!  Art Journaling is portable! Art-on-the-Go, Art in-Small-Spaces and Art for absolutely anyone at all who fancies a dabble and a play.
I have filled sketchbooks and made art journals of all shapes and sizes my whole life! Something about working inside a book captivates me. In fact I love looking at all my journals lined up on their very own shelf!

An Art Journal can be so many things……a keeper of memories, of dreams, ideas and schemes. A collection of experiments, try outs, plans and musings…..I use Art Journalling as reflection, as gratitude practice as a way to process my life and my day and a way to treasure and savour some of the truly mundane moments in a day which are are actually rather magical.
