I just wanted to take the time to say something. Remember, you do not need to be an artist to complete an art journal. Journalling is simply a way to organise your thoughts, document important parts of your life, or simply to let off steam!. It can be challenging as well as fun and can also be quite a therapeutic way to get out negative thoughts or feelings. It is a fabulous escape and can be similar to meditation in it’s calming effects on the brain and promoting general happiness. If you need somewhere to start, you could join a group such as The Documented Life, a group that sets weekly challenges in a safe and friendly environment, free from judgement. You can join at any time and many members have never journalled before. The easiest way to begin journalling is just to grab a book and START.
I have just started following A documented Life in my own journal and I’m loving it.
