I have journaled my whole life. Taking pen to paper, writing short bits and, sometimes, long, long diatribes about what I was experiencing in my day-to-day life. This has always been my thing. A few years ago, when I discovered that I could be creative about what I was seeing, hearing, feeling and living and show that in my journal, my whole outlook on journaling changed. I have soaked up lessons at retreats and in countless online courses from mixed media artists and art journalers and even prolific scrapbookers I admire and, after all that learning and practicing, my own creative style has emerged and that makes me smile....and giggle...and even dance in my studio like a giddy kid in a candy shop.
