Art Journaling can be a catalyst for self-expression and reflection; a way to give shape and form to the words, symbols and images that are part of one's chronicled story. If you are trying to find more fulfilling ways to express yourself than just plain journaling, art journaling is a nice change. Art Journaling is the process of keeping a regular record, usually in book form, of events, musings, thoughts, dreams (awake or asleep) and expressions of your life in images as well as in words.
The purpose behind art journaling is no different than regular journaling: processing current issues whether joyful or sad; gaining greater self-awareness, insight, fulfillment or self-expression. In sum, art journaling is a way of connecting with those deeper parts of your Self.
More than just writing or making art, art journaling can be a great path towards opening up to being more creative in a way that feels safe and contained. It can allow the emergence of all of that which makes you, YOU.
