Lazy, Hazy Summer DaysJune 30th, 2011
On these hazy days I’ve lost hours and hours, immersing myself in a lost love I’ve found again. How could I have let it go? I’ve picked up my pencils and paintbrush and begun art journaling once again. Ink, paint, pastel; whichever medium you choose, making a mark on paper and letting your imagination run free is wildly liberating. You can be yourself, you can empty your mind and your emotions out onto the page, you can release, you can heal. No one need see those pages but yourself, unless you want them to; you can make the craziest, childish art imaginable – in part, that’s the point. Try it: type ‘art journaling’ into a search engine or YouTube and make the discovery I made a few years ago. You’ll find so much inspiration out there from like-minded souls.
