Art for the Soul

You may have read in earlier posts that I'm taking the Soul Restoration workshop with Melody Ross. It's a fabulous way to learn more about yourself--why you let certain people & things into your life only to have them hurt you. You work through the lies and find yourself again with weekly videos & exercises.

With the exercises, you work in your art journal---making pages with prompts Melody gives you each week. I've never really been much of a journaler (& still don't do it as well as I should---one of the things I'm working on!) but adding the art portion has really made a difference.

It's not the best picture but I had a dog on my lap. :)  After taking several classes with Kelly Kilmer last weekend, I'm totally pumped about making art in my journal. This is the page I created yesterday with a couple of this week's prompts. Once I got to writing, I ran out of room!! My next journal is not going to have lines in it so I won't feel the need to actually write on the lines--it's the accountant in me!

Do you make art journals? Do you share them on your blog? What do you love about it??

  1. This page looks fabulous!! don't worry about lines you can always paint or gesso over them. I have seen several people using old calendars and diaries as art journals. Cannot wait to see your next pages.
