Hello beautiful friends,
I hope you all have had an amazing week. I have had a bit of a crazy one to be honest. I have been up to my eyeballs in paperwork – putting together everything for our taxes (so so much fun haha) . I am happy to say I am DONE! Wooo Hooo!!
I also had a beautiful meeting with my spiritual mentor yesterday – Im not going to lie it was hard and emotional but all in all it was amazing. You know how you feel when you talk to that one person who “gets” yes that is one huge thing that my mentor does for me. She is also always so full of positive inspiring talk for me, about me that it makes all this “hard stuff” seem even more worth it. Right now I’m still processing all that went on and things that happened so hopefully when I have more of a “clear” vision and way to explain things I will be back to share some of what came up for me in this meeting. I will share with you this – I found out what Bunny was trying to tell me and will share with you all later 🙂
Embracing your own handwriting
But that’s not why I”m here today, today I’m here to share a video that shows you how to enhance your art journals with your own handwriting. If you are like me for a long time I seriously did not want people to see my handwriting, but I just loved to look of it in others work and that inspired me to keep pushing myself to make things that had my writing on them. Here are some examples of me using my own handwriting in my art.
Believe it or not I used to have really beautiful handwriting – I mean I learned old school cursive and I used to love it. But as time went on and we got computers to do so much of our writing, my writing has turned into a bit of a hodgepodge style haha. Some cursive and some print. So I am learning to embrace my style and let go of the need for perfection – I mean after all it’s an art journal right?!
In This video I share with you how I add my own writing to the background and then create over it. I love this style and plan to do some more with this idea.
If you missed last weeks video on how to Enhance your art journals you can view it here
This week I shared with all of you my new and exciting Endeavor that’s on the horizon… you can read about it here
