IN MY BONES: A visual journal – The Book – Giveaway November 23, 2014

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Givaway picI just returned from San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico, where I had the most luxuriant time teaching, learning, being and engaging in the most profound experiences humankind has to offer. Seriously. Until I digest the abundance of it all and be able to share some of it with you, I’d like to offer you one of these little pink printed journals.

That’s my new book IN MY BONES: A visual journal. Behind all my journaling, teaching, and book making, is my deepest wish to share my gaping need to speak with whoever wants to listen about this incredible form of expression which I believe brings about intense changes, miracles of sorts, both personal and most certainly far-reaching.

Some have gotten the opportunity to peruse the pages of the book and find something luring there for themselves. This is a chance for anyone, whether you have it or not to receive a copy from my stash I have at home. To get that chance please share with us a one-liner describing what Visual-Journaling does for you, or if you have a copy already please share your thoughts about it.

The winner of the Giveaway will be announced a week from today on Sunday, November 30, at 12PM.

-Support me best by ordering it through my Createspace eStore

-Through my blog

-Much less supportive (-: nevertheless available at Amazon

-Pick up a copy at one of my workshops in Southern California

Until then, please find new ways to create, recreate, be here, and with us.



1. pamelaarts - November 23, 2014

Orly, I have your other books but not this one.Visual journaling makes me feel happy and creative and gives me a jumping off place to make all kinds of art.

2. jacki long - November 23, 2014

I tried to order your book, and the site said the credir card # was incorrect, but it wasn’t. I tried it with “-” and without, no change. Is it possible to send you a check +mailing for your book? Or shall I go to Amazon? Thanks.

Orly - November 23, 2014

Thank you Jacki, please try again later or tomorrow, I just spoke with Createspace and they said they had technical difficulties and are working now on fixing the problem…XOXO

3. Sheila J - November 23, 2014

Hi Orly:

I began keeping a grief art journal after my husband died just over a year ago. It has allowed me to process my feelings, and to begin the healing process.

4. RhinestoneContessa - November 23, 2014

The thing I love most about journaling is looking back over the years and seeing actual dreams and goals that have become real! It reinforces that putting it down is another way to manifest it! Xoxoxo

5. rene2539 - November 23, 2014

Hope I am not doing this twice. Just getting started. Don’t know that I have a feeling, but hopeful.

6. MaryJo Fisher - November 23, 2014

I was the person everyone else wanted to be for so long, I lost who I am–now I am meeting myself in my journals.

7. rae - November 23, 2014

journaling is my friend when i need to talk about my feelings to myself and puts it all into perspective for me

8. Cathy White - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling is a way for me to intuitively and spontaneously access my Self, and to experience my own inner treasure.

9. Michaela Mende Janco - November 23, 2014

Art Journaling makes me feel alive. I reinvent myself when I meet a blank (gessoed…) page.

10. Mandy van Goeije - November 23, 2014

I’ve been waiting for your book to come out…your journals are very inspiring to me. You want us to say in one line what visual journaling is to us. Well, to me, visual journaling is a second language I feel so very at home in…in which I can express parts of myself that I cannot otherwise find a place for. Visual journaling makes me whole.
~ Mandy van Goeije

11. scrapbox9 - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling for me is the process of collecting the universe onto the page; both the one that is without, and the one that is within.

12. Christy Brink - November 23, 2014

Orly, for me Visual Journaling is a life-giving spiritual practice that deeply feeds my soul. I hope to win your giveaway, nonetheless, I will be buying your book at some point! All the best to you!

13. Debbie Wismer - November 23, 2014

Art journalling gives me an inner peace an calm.

14. primdollie - November 23, 2014

I Love your books! Visual journaling gives me a place to channel my inner most feelings I can’t share with others and just to be me. I am now using my journal to process my grief as my brother is slowly dying from brain cancer. It’s been a tough road.

15. Glory Mooberry - November 23, 2014

Art journaling gives me back who I used to be, who I always wanted to be and who I am becoming.

16. Meg - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling helps me understand who I am, and who I am becoming.

17. DVV - November 23, 2014

For me Visual Journaling is simply magical…like a mysterious and illuminating treasure to be unwrapped & savored each time I begin…freedom & delight!

18. Annie - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling gives me the chance to open up to myself on many, many levels and to learn, grow, grieve, be happy and to accept myself. It’s a relaxing, non-threatening place for me to explore my feelings, my past, present and to look forward to my future.

19. Christine - November 23, 2014

art journaling gives me contentment…

20. Catherine M - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling gives me a safe place to play and create without feeling judged x

21. onerebelcowgirl - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling anchors me when the world around me is too chaotic.

22. alteredbits - November 23, 2014

I have your first book and I’m in love! It actually inspired me to journal more frequently and in doing so, I have released so much that I have literally almost cured myself of a 20 year bout of severe anxiety and depression. Spewing unfiltered can be the most amazing thing! I know that’s more than a one-liner. I cannot wait until I’m able to get your second and newest books — sheer gorgeousness! xx

23. Corliss Eden - November 23, 2014

Having been a canvas painter for so many years it has been a challenge to begin journaling. I love the intimate and honest spreads that you do Orly and hope that soon I will find my voice to do such wonderful work.

24. Kathy Winebrenner-Glynn - November 23, 2014

Hi Orly! Art journaling is how I take time to connect with my inner feelings and thoughts. It’s meditative and healing for me.

25. justjody - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling allows me to record the whisperings of my inner child so that I don’t take myself so seriously.

26. Mieke - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling is the one place I can be 100% me!

27. Janet - November 23, 2014

Orly – I so wish I could have been in SMA with you!!! I have been there each year the prior 3 years, but this year I went to Ireland – to do the class with you there!!! Would love to have this new book of yours. Visual journaling for me is a way of expressing a journey – from my travels, maybe a story from a book, or an experience that I had. Its a way of exploring those experiences. Thanks Orly!

28. Konii - November 23, 2014

It is as essential as it is to breathe.

29. aintnoninny - November 23, 2014

Your work is awesome, Orly, and wish I could attend one of your workshops. Visual journaling allows me to express parts of myself that are inaccessible by words. It’s healing and exhilarating at the same time.

30. Michelle mooney - November 23, 2014

It is my safe place to go and relax, learn, explore and grow

31. Bodeen - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling opens up a conversation between the deepest parts of myself and everything I feel connected to. It is how I can make sense of the chaos, hold and nurture even the ugliest parts, grieve, release, celebrate. Once it is out, I feel more peaceful and whole. P.S. Thank you so much for sharing your art!

32. joarty1 - November 23, 2014

For me visual journaling is a way to record ideas and images to use later for paintings or mixed media stuff. Things that arouse my interest and imagination, words or phrases (perhaps snippets overheard), unusual combinations of colours….all have a place in the journal. I’ll bet your book is choc-a-block with all these things.

33. bevlangby - November 23, 2014

Congratulations know it will be fabulous ,love the cover and thank you for the giveaway so generous Orly….

34. vivian helena aumond-capone - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling is sharing a part of myself that I might not see other wise.. Looking back at journals is a visualization in the past, see something I might not have noticed at the time.. A learning experience.

35. Denise Spillane - November 23, 2014

Hi Orly, since you were on Stencil Girl I have started following you and love your work. Visual Journalling has made me brave, I try things I have never tried before. This brings me the joy of play.

36. Dawn Zichko - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling allows me to explore the Inner Landscape while sometimes recording the Outer Landscape.

37. donna malone - November 23, 2014

I tried to order a while back when you first announced it and there was some technical hitch…
Your book looks amazingly juicy!
Journalling helps me know myself and my process…a very satisfying and spiritual process… x

38. painted jaybird - November 23, 2014

I wish to learn more about visual journaling. I’ve heard about your work and I’m hungry to learn more. Thank you Orly!

39. Lura Brown - November 23, 2014

art heals. i volunteer for a non profit and that is our belief. in over 9 years we have helped so many thru so much with art. for me personally i have had many struggles and art has helped me thru it always. 2015 proves to be my most difficult year yet, making many huge hard changes but i know that journaling will help me thru it. of course with the help of your book it would be even that much more healing. love you orly. thanks you so much for the chance to win one. you are one amazing artist and still on my bucket list to meet. xoxo


40. Indigene Art Forms - November 23, 2014

Visual journaling helped me to face the grief of losing my mother, aunt and sister, in a span of 11 months. It helped to keep me from the edge of an abyss of depression. I am now past that place, but the visual journaling remains, a true and raw friend.

41. Jen U. - November 23, 2014

Art journaling puts me in a cocoon where all the shoulds,” “couldn’ts” and dizzying cacophony of everyday life is silenced… if only for that brief, blessed span of time.

42. Gavi Slutzkin - November 23, 2014

Sounds so interesting, I’ve never journaled that way but sounds great! I’d love to read your book!

43. Jane Evasiuk - November 23, 2014

Experiencing visual journalling was a surprising spiritual gift to me: a life metaphor that there is good in whatever I create, and I am also encouraged to “say Bye-Bye” (Orly speak 😉 ) and let go of what doesn’t fit for me ~ Thank-You!!

44. vickiinyourhead - November 23, 2014

Art Journaling has become so much a part of me that I can no longer live without it. It’s like having a best friend to talk to all the time.

45. meo - November 24, 2014

VIsual journaling helps me “juice” what enlivens and inspires me. It has become a medicine practice, an RX for body and soul, as I navigate the waters of what was given the label, “lyme disease.” I’m learning freedom, play, hanging out with the unknown, and what it’s like to experiment with a bold hand and spirit.

46. marycnasser - November 24, 2014

Visual-Journaling quiets everything for me.
When I make art, everything becomes quiet. 🙂

47. Debbi Murray - November 24, 2014

A place to breathe. A place to scream. A place of quietude. A place of madness. A place of listening. A place of voice. A place of hope. A place of you.

48. s. m. - November 24, 2014

Journaling has opened my heart and cleared out the dusty corners..Sadness and hard times, joy and happiness all accumulate and mass together, then become indiscriminate.. once covered with dust of time, we get lost..Journaling and incorporating visuals, painting, thoughts, wishes,drawings and photos help us on our journey of discovery… memories become friends with whom we can commune once again..it is never too late to start dusting!..best,, sandra mac diarmid…the one liner is the first sentence!!.. other thoughts just would not be quiet…

49. Linda Arandas - November 24, 2014

Hi Orly–my art journals are sacred repositories of my creative journey. Congrats on your new book…it’s on my wishlist.

50. arlene - November 24, 2014

art journaling keeps me sane

51. Grace Mendez (@gracemndz) - November 24, 2014

It’s how I relax.

52. Stacie - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling gives me a chance to open up to my thoughts and intuition, a steadfast friend that I always know will be there for me to whisper my stories in.

53. Julia Dean - November 24, 2014

Hi Orly, I would love to have a signed copy from you!, that would be wonderful, and I could gift my precious already purchased copy to a dear friend who I know would be overjoyed, …..win, win! xxxxxHUGS!…So glad you have such an extemely amazing time away.

54. Julia Dean - November 24, 2014

Oh, I forgot to answer the question…
What journaling does for me?
It always makes me learn…something: about letting go, about patience, about allowing myself to fly, about just plain being absorbed in creating without judgement from myself or anybody else, what a JOY!!!!

55. artisbasic - November 24, 2014

I would love to check out your book. Art journaling is a way for me to play and express myself without the pressure of completing anything. I can just do as much or or little as I want.

56. artisbasic - November 24, 2014

I would love to check out your book. Art journaling is a way to play and express myself without having the pressure to complete anything. I can do as little or as much as I want.

57. Sara White - November 24, 2014

I would LOVE to have this book! I have wanted to take a workshop from you for awhile now, but haven’t, but know I will when the time and place, and my availability, is right! Love your work.

58. Bea Savellano - November 24, 2014

It makes me focus on things I did not even know were there…bea

59. Krista - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling allows me to express myself when words either can’t or won’t do it.

60. Meredith - November 24, 2014

My visual journal- a place to experiment and invent; magical things happen there.

61. Charissa Struble - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling allows me to extract parts of my soul and give them meaning in a way that only I truly understand.

62. Elke May - November 24, 2014

Oh you never cease to amaze me! So beautiful and powerful. Art journaling— for me — a way to capture moments where my spirit and experience collide.

63. lulu moonwood murakami - November 24, 2014

Hi Orly, My dear friends Jan Davis and Janet and Sally Wilson have been sharing the wonderfulness of you. They had such an amazing time with you in Ireland! I would love to get to know you through your book, and hopefully in the near future at one of your workshops. Art journaling was the instrument that helped me return to my creative life, allowing me to play and at the same time gain confidence.
Thank you for this opportunity!

64. Sheila Earhart - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling helps me work through feelings, thoughts and problems and most importantly, it soothes my soul.

65. Renee Stien - November 24, 2014

Journaling makes me feel brave – congratulations on your new book!

66. ronitneemansalei - November 24, 2014

Dear Orly, not only I enjoy visually your Art Journaling, I feel connected to you, sharing similar past and places, and deeply understanding of your visual language. Art Journaling takes me on an unknown journey visiting time and places in my past and present, that makes me view things in a different perspective. I am loving this process. Regardless if I win this treasure of yours, I will wish you always to keep inspiring and be inspired! Love- Ronit

67. qesther - November 24, 2014

it gives me a chance to breath visually .

68. Audrey - November 24, 2014

Visual Journaling takes me to another place where I can be totally alone and can shut off life’s stress for the time it takes me to finish the page.
Congratulations and thank you for the opportunity to win your wonderful book.

69. Leanne - November 24, 2014

Visual-journaling takes me to another place entirely where I can say what I like and noone need know what that is!

70. anniefroese - November 24, 2014

Hello Orly,…. Visual journalling for me has been like breathing. If I miss spending time with it for a few days, I’m just not as focussed or present. It’s a safe place to process things, explore my creative voice, express myself…. to be free to experiment. It makes me feel alive!

71. hillfiona - November 24, 2014

Your book would be gorgeeeeoooouuuuss! I would LOVE a copy Orly 🙂 Art Journaling has been fundamental in me being able to hear my own creative voice and have confidence in expressing it!

72. Marianne Johansson - November 24, 2014

Art journaling for me is freedom!! Do what I want, just for fun and makes me happy!

73. Pascale Plänk Steig - November 24, 2014

art journaling is my warm and happy place, where, as my hands work, my thoughts fly around and inspration flows…

76. Wendy Parsons - November 24, 2014

Hi Orly,Here’s my entry: “Visual Journalling is a tool for opening up the rich universe that lives within me.  I discover new insights, new voices, new perspectives which I was not aware of and which I express through creating beauty on the page.  In this way, VJ brings me into a fuller, more realized, and– most important–,more joyful human being.” Blessings,Wendy Parsonscell:  215–206-7969  

77. pugfishing - November 24, 2014

I open my journal and the present and past tumbles out in colors and symbols and then there is the Always– preserving memory in those pages.

78. Mary kite - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling paints a picture of my heart, leaking out thoughts and memories I sometimes never knew I had.

79. Kathryn Dyche Dechairo - November 24, 2014

Journaling is such a great form of self expression and a great healer. It’s a place I can be myself. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway.

80. julie wasson - November 24, 2014

Art Journalling frees me from everything weighing on me. I can try new things and cast away old. Your book is beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win it.

81. Deborah Guthrie - November 24, 2014

Your journal work makes my heart race and inspires and energizes me for all the creative work I like to get into. I have your other books and very much look forward to this one. Thank you

82. Mary - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling is just pure joy! Thoroughly enjoyed your book – One Artist Journal! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

83. Peggy - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling heals my soul.

84. Dana - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling allows me to capture a moment. I love the quote by Pablo Picaso about painting being another way of keeping a diary. It’s also the place I can play with different techniques and color combos. Congratulations on your new book and thank you for all of the inspiration you provide.

85. betty wisse - November 24, 2014

Visual Journaling gives me a feeling of freedom and a moment to reflect on life.

86. Susie Zolghadri - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling starts out as an escape, a way out, a doorway to another place. After passing through the door, my soul offers up layer after layer of thought and feeling. Revealing and releasing. I love it!!

87. GG Schade - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling is how I combine color and drawing with ideas I used to just write about.

88. Sandy Ward - November 24, 2014

I already have your new book on my Amazon wish list, but a copy from you would be a treat – your work helps me realize that it’s OK to create just for oneself through both art and words, and not worry about pleasing others.

89. Cybele Flematti - November 24, 2014

Visual Journaling is so many things to me: escape, relief, meditation, manifestation, recording, remembering, collecting, therapy…..Hope I win! 🙂

90. Petra - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling is a way of express thougts, feelings and spiritual moods.

91. CynfulCreations - November 24, 2014

Having had the opportunity to see many of the original pages which appear in this book in Orly’s journal while we were doing her workshop in Mexico together last week, I feel even more connected to the visual journaling experience. It is both an escape from the world around me and an entry into the world of me.

92. Linda Richards - November 24, 2014

Visual Journaling for me is a peaceful time that I take to think about my day or not, depending on the type of day that I may have had. Sometimes I use Visual Journaling to block out the angry or bad day I may have or I use it to remind myself to get rid of the ugly or bad day that I may have had.

93. Kat Gottfried - November 24, 2014

visual journaling provides me with a safe space to express what I’m unable to do with words alone.

94. buntyw - November 24, 2014

I started a journal when my son died – a private place for my thoughts

95. Martice Smith II - November 24, 2014

For me, Visual Journaling keeps me calm during the chaos and allows me to reign confidently in chaos during the calm; my revelational meeting place. ~Martice Smith II

96. Jessica - November 24, 2014

Art journaling provides a release for me.

97. Linda Meza - November 24, 2014

In visual journaling all expression is fair game, no prize, no penalty – I come out to play with my playmate, myself.

98. Francie W. Gannon - November 24, 2014

Visual Journaling breaks me open helping me to see the more expansive me.

99. William Charlebois - November 24, 2014

Your book looks fascinating! Being continuously broke, I’d love to win it. 🙂

100. cynnthea - November 24, 2014

I love your art and inspiration and would be over the moon to win a copy since financial difficulties make it difficult at present to buy 🙂 thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

101. cynnthea - November 24, 2014

Visual journaling opens me up to discovering the hidden recesses of myself and at other times is just a way to relax and have fun! Would love to win a copy of your book at this point during financial restrictions 🙂

102. Nicole Goodwin - November 24, 2014

Visual Journaling helps me to give some form to what I’m yearning for next, what i don’t have specific words for, to just be in a little playspace alone.

103. dorcas Midkiff - November 25, 2014

I know from experience that journaling/writing to myself is such good therapy. We find who we are in the little details that present themselves while lost in the moment creating:) Your new book would be such a delightful addition for my muse:)

104. Cindy Ceroky - November 25, 2014

I will be looking for a copy of your book, thankful to Seth Apter for sharing you!

105. kwoz2014 - November 25, 2014

Your name keeps coming up as inspiration and mentor for so many artists. I can see why!

106. goddessmychele - November 25, 2014

Congratulations on your new book! It looks like a feast to behold.

107. trish - November 25, 2014

Visual journaling brings me peace on good days, and keeps me from falling apart in the not so good ones. ♥

108. Kim Henkel - November 25, 2014

Visual Journaling heals me, makes me whole, gives me peace and joy, and takes my stress away. I am putting your book at the top of my Christmas hope list.

109. Lorrie Dunivin - November 25, 2014

Confession…I know little about visual journaling. I have been flirting with the idea of giving it a try. I am a crochet fiend but as of late have felt the desire to try new things. It’s funny how things have a way of finding you when you need them. 😃

110. Julia - November 25, 2014

Visual journaling has allowed me to tap back into my inner creative self. It’s a safe place to play and experiment.

111. Christi Conley - November 25, 2014

I would truly love your book – I have been feeling “stuck” lately & your book would certainly unstick me. If I don’t win it, I am buying it anyway, I have heard SO many fabulous things about it ~ Blessings, Christi

112. AnnIsikArts - November 25, 2014

The first artistic thing I did this morning was open Seth Apter’s email which introduced me to you and your work. This is better than my first cup of tea for the day. Good luck to you and your work and I will be following you closely. Ann

113. Françoise Huot-Marchand - November 25, 2014

L’art journal est une révélation pour moi, je démarre avec un réel plaisir et je suis enthousiasmée à l’idée d’enrichir mes connaissances. Votre approche de cet art m’a littéralement séduite. Bravo et merci à vous.

114. AnnIsikArts - November 25, 2014

Visual journaling. I think ‘visible journaling’ is an equally-apt description of what I’m doing. In making art and at the same time talking about the journey in my blog, which is a journey of the spirit, I’m trying to share the ‘places’ I discover and the spiritually-enriching ‘treasures’ I find there. The greatest of these treasures, is the folks I am constantly meeting on the same path, whose work and whose brave and generous sharing of it, is almost always more enriching than my own work.

115. Patricia Wolf - November 25, 2014

I do something I call automatic writing which leads me to what I really want to say. My handwriting becomes very artistic looking too. No longer just words. Thanks for a chance to win your book. Love your style!

116. Charlotte - November 25, 2014

I’m new to art journaling and excited about starting the journey into visual expression and would love your book.

117. Mary Jane Chadbourne - November 25, 2014

I have your other book and adore it…visual journaling rocks and you are such an inspiration to us all!

118. dannylion - November 25, 2014

Sounds wonderful and the name of it is interesting… all my life I have been trying to communicate to my son through visuals (he as severe autism and does not speak nor does he understand spoken english language). My Danny is 20. I have broken “take a bath” down into 132 visual steps and somehow unable to communicate to him visually… He understands pictures. That is the only connection I have to him. This book speaks to me. If there are techniques in there to help me make something sparkly for him *he loves sparkly things” that may help… At this point – I think I need to change my techniques but I just do not know how!Thank you for offering this giveaway!!!!!

119. kampysgirl - November 25, 2014

Hello Orly!
Congratulations on your new book and the word is your book is a feast for the soul, distinctly you- Seth says so!!
Thank you so much for your generous offer and I hope to be the one fortunate enough to win. I truly look forward to listening to what you have to share! ~warm regards~

120. nydiart - November 25, 2014

My best work are in my journals…

121. Sherry W Matthews - November 25, 2014

visual journaling is the practice of using honesty in art…

122. QuinnCreative - November 25, 2014

Visual journaling allows you to *make* meaning, not just *seek* meaning.

123. scrapmanija - November 25, 2014

Orly, Heartfelt congrats on your new book! I have both of your previous ones, and look forward to experiencing your art and stories in this new one. I need some inspiration! My art space is growing cobwebs.

124. Deb Prewitt - November 25, 2014

I love that there are no rules and I can do my art journaling any way I want to and that is OK.

125. scrapmanija - November 25, 2014

Orly, Heartfelt congrats on your new book! I have both of your previous ones, and I can’t wait to experience the art and your stories in this new book. I need some inspiration! My art space is growing cobwebs.

126. avoconnor22 - November 25, 2014

I think of visual journaling as practice: practicing my art, and practicing my life.

127. Marion - November 25, 2014

Visual Journaling clears my mind and helps keeping track of everyday life like a diary – and as it´s visual, I like to come back to it again and again!

130. Darlene Campbell - November 25, 2014

Visual journaling is “inside-out” art-expression for me. I can go deep inside myself while creating and come out the other side with artistic expression on paper. it helps to define and balance me, I would be honored to win a copy of your book. Thank you for the opportunity. Cheers- Darlene

131. Bunk - November 25, 2014

Orly, for me my visual journals are ‘integration machines’. That is they help integrate different aspects of myself. I crank up these machines with paper, paint and pencil until the spreads start to hum with mystery. Then I feel I have arrived.

132. robina - November 25, 2014

Visual journaling is a transformative process for me that I hope to share with students and anyone else who is interested in healing through art-making. The practice saved my life.

Ohhh how I would love a copy of your beautiful book!! My journal(s), yes I have several going at the same time, are my secret room, my private space, my friend who’s always there. I’m so inspired by what I see in the world in nature as well as from other artists like you. I love to spill my inspirations out onto the pages and see how “me” evolves out of them!

Journaling: putting your soul into paper that only visual methods can express what soul is communicating. Words do not do it justice. Too raw for words alone.

138. Kelly West - November 26, 2014

I would love to have a copy ofyour journal to learn from. 🙂

being new to visual journaling, this is a wonderful opportunity to reveal in your art.

142. Angeline - November 26, 2014

I use my journal every day, it gives me sense of freedom and at the same time grounding in the here and now. As I race through life, journalling is a way of slowing down and being present, in this moment, right here, right now.

143. Donna Kaye - November 26, 2014

144. Andrew Burgess - November 26, 2014

Journaling is imperfect as is other fallible creativity in that pretends to record but instead distorts as determined by need, but is essential.

145. Patti - November 26, 2014

I journal daily and I love the freedom of expression it gives me. No one to criticize and the only one I need to please is me. I would love to see your book. Hugs

147. Denise Daffara - November 26, 2014

woops… I commented in the wrong spot… Visual journaling gives me a chance to listen.. pause.. hear whats going on inside.. and have my Soul speak to me in colour. xx Denise.

148. Zahava - November 26, 2014

I would so love to have this book and be inspired by your work. I’d keep it on my bedside table, gaze at it before falling asleep each night, and let the pictures infiltrate my subconscious mind, my dreams. Then maybe I wouldn’t be so strangely unable to keep an art journal past the first few pages.

149. Lesley Fitzpatrick - November 26, 2014

I have kept visual journals for many years now, I just can’t help it.

150. Anna Maria Stone - November 26, 2014

I’ve had an on and off and on again love affair with visual journaling since 2006. I was pretty much obsessed with it for a long time until I started painting a lot on canvas, because I had found myself often thinking “I wish I had done this on canvas or paper rather than in the journal”.
However, little nudges here and there have been drawing me back to it, and I can feel a possible rekindling of the love affair on the horizon!

151. Patricia Esparza - November 26, 2014

Visual journaling gives me a glimpse of my soul

Visual journaling is the ability to express myself freely without any rules or fear. It is something I can completely lose myself in and let my inner voice play and have fun!

Visual art journaling is my own art therapy.

157. Stephanie - November 26, 2014

Visual journaling for me is an intimate expression of inner exploration; I can create an emotional landscape with meaning through the use of line, color and texture.

Visual journaling is a way of life.

164. Diane - November 27, 2014

I started a visual journal a few years ago as a way to dismiss the negative rhetoric in my head – I made the pages a thing of beauty – I veiled the sad, distraught and negative comments within the pages. Once the page was done I could move on and leave the thoughts there. I can go back and admire the pages but not have revisit the past. I now journal happy thoughts – and visual journaling has helped me move forward in my life.

165. Monika Welch - November 27, 2014

I saw the picture on the front cover and it made me shiver….in that good way that only certain visuals can make you feel. Like….you want to know more…and connect and see who made it. Of course it was you! And now a book. I would so love to see this in my lap, beside my bed, and going for rides in the car. My new best friend.

166. Winona Morris - November 27, 2014

Visual journaling is therapy for me, helping me deal with depression and unrelenting stress without the medications that I can’t afford.

167. Heidi Helena Moen - November 27, 2014

168. robyn - November 28, 2014

Visual journaling allows me to express my inner landscape in colors and shapes and things that can’t be expressed in word alone.

169. Judy Brewer - November 28, 2014

I have been devouring everything I can read about Visual Journaling and am trying to get started having it as a daily activity.

170. Belinda Spiwak - November 28, 2014

I’m a mixed media artist that art journals. I keep coming back to it. My students love when I do it with them. Your book would be very inspiring.

171. Gaye - November 28, 2014

Art journalling is “me” time – no rules, just whatever moves me at the time!

172. It makes me happy - November 28, 2014

Journaling has given me so much more than an opportunity to explore, play and discover – it’s given me an ability to share more, open up, touch people and rediscover long buried emotions, confidence,self-belief and more, so much more…it’s given me back a rich deep and adventurous life<3
