Hi All! Well, life sure has changed since this got off the ground. A "new normal" ...We just have to roll with it, don't we? The new year is still fresh and we can make this a mix of creativity and social interaction. We are in a "stay at home" or "limit your exposure" life today. But there is still a chance for you to plant the seeds of hope for 2021 and every day within with positive affirmations, favorite quotes, poems, and scriptures. Whatever motivates you! Art is expressed individually. We will start with a goals and dreams board for the new year and set you off on your year of creative journaling!
We all have a story to tell! Whether you are seeking to find a way to connect with your inner self, trying to make progress while battling life challenges, seeking healing and self-acceptance, The most important thing is to find others to connect with. This group was started as an in-person Meetup group and due to restrictions, we temporarily (hopefully) will be meeting online. It is not the typical "journaling" class. It is about integrating art and self-expression into your story.
Come and join the movement towards healing and reframing your story by manifesting your goals and visions.
Hi all! It's time to gather and manifest more journal entries! For those who missed the last one, we had a few new members who shared their journeys. I went over the various types of books and journals we can use to create "smash book" journals, "art journals" and creating pages that express positive thoughts and feelings. For supplies, I always suggest scouring around and look for any old books (hardcover and rough pages are best), look online for FREE printable papers ( I will add more before our meet). Glue sticks, adhesive rollers, and double-sided strip tape. Markers Watercolors brushes watercolor brushes Black detail permanent pens for writing and details scissors magazine rip pages
Gather any supplies you have. For those who have completed pages, bring what you have to share. I will go over supplies again. Share my favorite things to use and mostly, start with your journal...it can be a spiral, book-bound, lined, or unlined.... I will send out more info before the meet.
Activities we have discussed... Your "fishbowl" or jar with affirmations and positive inspirations to guide a page in your journal Your self- reflective entry....a selfie-and what you want to tell yourself Your "things I can change" wheel and "things I can't" Outline your hand on a torn-out book page....paint it colorful and add words that inspire you.
Hope to see you all!! We have a lot to catch up on. S :)
