Spread #43- I Dare You March 15, 2009Posted by Orly in Spreads.
…to art journal with me. I dare you to be bold and messy, to set your wanderings on the pages of a journal, to abandon timeworn thought forms and self-doubt, to allow yourself freedom. I dare you to come back to your senses.
Art Journaling, nowadays, is no longer for artists only. A great Art Journal Movement has emerged. Individuals from all walks of life, all corners of our globe, express themselves, share their journey with journal pages, with family and friends, on the Internet, with strangers, fellow journalers, through their blogs, and via land mail. They gather in collective journal celebrations. It is breathtaking as it is infectious.
I’ve been posting my digital journal spreads on my blog for about nine months now. During that time I have found a whole community of art journalers, an unimaginable source of wonder, a sense of sweet global connectedness, a spring of simple yet grand joys.
These sentiments have cultivated in me the want to share with you, my neighbors here in the South Land, what undoubtedly became a spiritual practice to me. Now I dare you to join me on a jaunty journal journey!
Take a look at the classes workshops and events I offer to you at this time. Find what suits you. Book a private event in your own space.
And if ‘gathering’ is not your ‘thing’ but you wish to journal, get yourself a nice, blank, simple book, some markers, paints, pens, pencils, images, scraps of paper…and journal away…The page has no limits…I dare you!
