Creative art journaling has been a very healing experience for me and I know it is helping others. In this group, I'd like to explore this idea with others who have discovered this and with those who are curious. Please feel free to add pics and tips, but especially any stories of how this is helping, inspiring or healing for you.

Thank you...and welcome!

Hi I just joined the group and my goal for 2014 is to make a visual dairy / art journal a new page for each day. Will see how that goes, with a nine month old baby, I don't get much time to be creative. I love Donna Downey's inspiration Wednesday! (have a look at her web site) Any one know if any other good sources of inspiration?

I have just popped into this group as art journalling has recently come onto my radar, I made a couple of pieces and it was such fun. The piece here was inspired by bar codes (the bar codes on my elec bill), I live in the mountains so when we have thunder storms the elec goes off, lightening strikes (= more bar codes) anyway that was where my head started

That's really beautiful, Jane!  I would love to know more about what you did.  I've added a special discussion for techniques.  Will you go there and tell us all about it? :)

Thanks, Linda!  It's nice to know someone is still watching this group!  I'm glad you enjoyed my pics, too.  I guess I could have painted those flowers, but it was fun to just play with all the materials and see where they wanted to go.  The napkins are always a little transparent, especially the lighter parts.  I love how the torn edges blend in, so well. You can hardly see them.  Thanks, so much for your nice comments!  :)

I just too a look at the flickr site.  Thanks for sharing your work in progress.  It's really interesting and makes me want to get the paints out.  I love your use of the paper napkins as a jumping off point.  Once you added the blue dots those flowers just popped!

Just wanted to pop in and say hello.  I'm still here, and available, just fyi.  I know we all understand crazy lives and making it back to the computer.  I want to post more pictures, but I'm on the wrong computer, right now so I'll leave this link:

That's to a set on my flickr site which shoes the evolution of two spreads, using the same materials in the same order, but in different ways.  It was a fun experiment and might make an interesting prompt.  :)
