Try as I may, I really struggle with doing a physical art journal.
I am fairly handy with mixed media art...I really enjoy that aspect.
But the drawing and painting and does not come to me naturally.
I really have to work at it.
Perhaps I need a class? Any suggestions?

Now digital art journaling?
Well that is a different story.
That I really enjoy.
The depth of detail that can be created with digi art really speaks to me.

As you may already know, I adore word art.
I love for a piece to not only speak to me artistically...
but then for a message to be apart of that piece makes it all the more meaningful to me.
Very often it is a spiritual exercise.
A message that needs to be in my eyes, in my heart, throughout the day.
That is usually where the inspiration starts.

As with this piece, I am experiencing a certain fear in my life right now.
Daily I am encountering that fear.
Daily I need to be reminded what to do with that fear.
Looking forward to the next message.

I need to challenge myself to a larger canvas.
Right now the 4x4 or 5x7 is what I am comfortable with.
But I need to stretch myself and go beyond that.

Is there an aspect of creativity that you are really comfortable with?
Do you feel the need to stretch in another area?
Would love to hear.


  1. Hi Jamie
    Funny I find the same thing. I go completely blank when I sit down to the real art journaling. I have done some in the past and thoroughly enjoyed it once in the groove, but I find digital a bit less intimidating and much easier! I love the blending and of course the fact nothing to tidy up or clean!
    Love your bird!
