Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom
Stretching myself and creating my first art journal
AND altered book!
The first prompt in this journey of introspection…
is to create a self portrait with thought bubbles.
As with anything in art journals…
I took a little liberty with the prompt.
I made my first attempt at drawing a ‘whimsical girl’
after watching this video here.
This season of introspection also goes along well with
my one little word for the year
believing that I am enough.
I chose to share my thoughts in the curls of her hair,
rather than actual thought bubbles
(again, a little liberty in the art journal world)
And while I look at this and see lots of mistakes
I am choosing to view them as lessons
and areas where learning has taken place,
as well as learning to embrace my word…
and embrace that what I have created is enough…
I hope you enjoy and would love to know your thoughts!
