I was working on my art journal, something that is new to me. I doodle, write ideas down all the time in notebooks, but do not have one designated place for journaling. Did you know there is a magazine, dedicated to this craft. I say craft, because these artists exude so much talent, it is a unique magazine. You can see the inspiration and ideas behind the artist, peer into their worlds, their thoughts. Who doesn't love to get an insightful view of the process of any type of creative medium. I know I do.
Art Journaling ..."will take you inside the pages of some of your favorite artists for an up-close-and-personal look.

I haven't seen this issue, yet; it is insightful to give it a try. This is just a page I doodled, then painted and scribbled on. I think when we reveal our fear and expose ourselves, our art, our words, we open doors, that can help us heal~
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams...
