Art journaling has become a very popular form of self expression and a creative outlet for self care.
Allowing yourself the freedom to go beyond traditional journaling and to infuse art as a tool for daily or weekly check-ins, goes far beyond the benefits of simply writing to Dear Diary.
You don’t require advanced artistic skills to get started. You simply need to love getting creative and trying something new.
To start turning your daily experiences and emotions into art, you require a rummage through your junk draw and a search through your craft supplies.
Next, consider complimenting your household finds with a quick trip to the dollar store.
