I finally got to work in my art journal today. I was able to release my anxious energy on the page. Life has gone on this wild ride of chaos, uncertainty and heartache. I did this page to remind myself that even when life doesn't turn out the way you would like you can still choose to have a positive attitude and focus on the positive things in your day. Boy, have I missed being creative and journaling. I am taking an art journaling class from Paulette Insall right now and even in week one I have learned some new techniques. Never stop learning is my goal. Every artist has their own way of art journaling. I will adopt the techniques I like and not worry about the ones I don't enjoy. Somerset just put out a magazine for Art Journaling and I found it at the bookstore yesterday and am pouring over every page. They have done a wonderful job putting it together. You can check it out here. It took a sprained ankle to give me an excuse to be home and work in my journal. I am praising the Lord that it wasn't broken and that I got a day of creativity.

I'm so glad you found the magazine but sad you have a sprained ankle. Maybe this is God's way to slow your life down!?
