What is an Art Journal?

An art journal is a book where you put together art, imagery and words to express yourself. You can use many different types of art materials to compose your pages. An art journal can be a place for personal reflection or where you can write how you feel. It helps you get in touch with your emotions, deep feelings and intentions. It can also be a place to just experiment and have fun with new art supplies. It is whatever you want it to be.

I use my art journal often. I wouldn’t say I use it every single day, but I definitely pull it out when I have a bit of anxiety or stress. I also pull it out when I have a goal, or I want to set an intention. I write down all of my intentions and goals. When I see my intentions start to manifest, I pull out my journal again. It can be a great tool for reflection.

My clients will benefit greatly from using an art journal. It is a wonderful way to get aligned with what you want from this life. Some of us struggle with remaining on the right path and an art journal can be the key to staying focused.
