Last night I held the first of my new “Journal Journey” workshops at my home studio. A great BIG thank you to everyone who joined in the introspective fun!
We had such a great time with this project, I just had to share with you.
I titled this workshop “Me, Myeslf & I.” Through it we explored the various aspects of our personalities, the emotions attached to them and how we can find balance in our lives. Right off the bat it was obvious that everyone was getting deeply into the process. The room fell silent as these women created themselves onto the page.
Each person approached the project in a unique way. Despite the differences in creative process, there were similar themes that emerged. What I found to be the most amazing is that everyone recognized what it is in their lives that keeps them balanced.
As women, we have many roles, can have extreme emotions and sometimes feel like we are running through life upside down and inside out. It can be very easy to loose our balance. How incredible that through a 2 hour art activity this group of women all recognized what they can do to bring balance into their lives at any moment.
Here is a little sample of the artwork from the class.
(You may notice that we actually worked on loose pages for this project. I believe journal entries don’t always have to be in a book 🙂 )
If you live in the Fayetteville area I hope you can join me next Wednesday evening! We’ll be exploring the theme of “New Beginnings” and creating personalized covers for our journals. For more information clickity click right here.
