Art Journal Inspiration

I know I have mentioned art journaling before, but I received a new book from today and Sharon Soneff, author of Art Journals & Creative Healing: Restoring the Spirit through Self-Expression, made everything so clear... she described this process so perfectly and I wanted to share it with all of you...

"This is not the time for making masterpieces. All creative expression is safe and beautiful in the space of a healing journal, in which imperfection is desirable. Imperfections add character and tend to be more hones in their impulsivity. Quick work is telling work. Dare to be urgent in your execution, so that you can be revealing and compelling in the process.
Your journaling need not be coherent or complete; it need only be honest. These pieces are not created for an audience, your journal is a haven for partial thoughts, and even single words that resound with you.
For this to be effective you must make yourself vulnerable. Remove all judgement-making when expression and articulating on paper. Ungard your heart. "
