Art Journal page 1



Are you ready for the next step? Let's make some art!

The first art journaling process I want to share with you is probably the one I use most often: I come to the page with no expectation, no preconceived idea, and I just follow my inner compass. It feels so good to let go and simply play, following what feels good, what feels most exciting or most inspiring in the present moment.

This is really what I invite you to do here: tune in to your inner compass, pay attention to the way you feel, both physically and emotionally, and let your intuition guide you!

Your legs will get heavy and tired. Then comes a moment of feeling the wings you’ve grown, lifting.
— Rumi
