Hey Love Beans ! This week, I wanted to share with you my process to create a colorful cover for the first Art Journal I’ll be using in 2018 (PS: as you’ll see in the video, I use a very easy handmade journal. If you’d like me to cover how I did it with a quick video, tell me in the comments here or on Youtube).
Here is the video:
I truly came back to my first loves: layers. finger painting. texture. colors. This year, I am creating to bring joy back into my life. Last year, I was in a deep creative drought.
After long periods of analysing what I was going through, trying to understand, some few points came up:
- I was putting too much pressure on myself to create to please, to create to sell.
- Also, I was passing time comparing my path with other artists’ paths. This is never a positive thing to do.
- I lost my personal creative voice.
My solution was to go back years ago, to the techniques that truly speaks to my Soul and make my Heart sing. This art journal cover embodies all of this.
