Courage in Art Journaling Spread

A brand new art journal.
Crisp, clean ...and blank pages.
Close your eyes. Breathe. Now jump into a new spread and just let yourself go.
Do not fear the empty pages.
This is freedom.
There's no right and no wrong.
No mistakes.
You are the artist. Fill the paper with what's in your heart.

Draw, doodle, scribble, write, stamp, color, and paint with your hearts truest desires.

I have found that art journaling is one of the most relaxing and pleasurable forms of art. While I do strive for pretty; I create for me. The art doesn't have to be perfectly polished.  I experiment and create without fear. Unexpected outcomes can be quite pleasant. Taking chances and exploring opportunities is thrilling. 

I have started a brand new art journal illustrating, the courage needed to overcome fear; in my first spread.
