Mindful Art Journal Page

Hi All!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

I have been putting a lot of energy and thought into one of my new journals.  I want this journal to be a place for only positive thoughts, quotes and dreams.  I am working in this journal quite differently than my regular process.  I normally tend to work on multiple pages during one sitting, moving back and forth through pages as my muse takes me.  For this journal I want to create my entries mindfully, working on the entries until they are finished.


I have saved this Yoga card and Labyrinth for a very special project, and I have finally found it.  I wanted this journal spread to focus on calming my mind and getting into a more focused state before reading what lies beyond.  You may recognize the background as it is the page from the Derwent Inktense pencil technique I did in this video.

I can't tell you how wonderful it felt to create this, it was very refreshing!  I have so many wonderful things planned for this journal and I can't wait to continue to share them with you.  So far it's been completely opposite to why I usually journal, which is to release anxieties.  It feels so fulfilling to create something positive and with intent.

While researching Labyrinths I found this wonderful website.  You can learn the history and use of Labyrinths, as well as how you can draw your own!  How awesome is that?

So many wonderful things are happening in my life, I hope to be able to share them with you soon.  Thank you all so much for the support, love, and friendships!   I wish you all peace and much LOVE!

  4. I love looking at your artwork. I've tried to create like you but painting does take talent and trust me it does. My goal for next year, yes 2012, is to take time to make a journal of this kind. Thanks for sharing.
