Art Journaling

November 26, 2010

Journaling Reads:
I’ve struggled to create an art journal for four years. I always seem to start it but never finish one. I always find a way to talk myself out of it. To be critical or make it feel unimportant.

But the thing that’s great about art journals is that they are not meant to be perfect. They are expressions of emotion. They are for trying out ideas. For experimenting. When you experiment, you will often fail, that’s the point.

And the idea of doing something purely for fun, purely for trying out ideas inspires me. That’s the only reason I keep coming back to the journals. The reason I keep trying time after time. And the reason I will never give up on it.

What inspires me almost as much is took look at other people’s journal pages. Their boldness, uniqueness, the expression of emotion always blows my mind. Makes me want to be bold. Makes me want to stop anything else I might be doing, grab some paint and play.

Isn’t that the definition of inspiration?
