After a difficult afternoon dealing with prospective landlords and realtors, as well as the fear that we may not find anything in time, I took to the soothing process of Art Journaling. Just a bit, with simple materials of markers, pens, and pastels.
I worked in a book that was originally a “comic” book of the story of Frankenstein. I glued used printing paper from my master’s thesis research, repurposing the almost ream of paper I had gone through. This book is also a journal of sorts for a… I think I would call it a ‘Fulfillment’ seminar I’m going through at work. Creation and exploration are a theme of this book.
Like any meditative activity worth its name, the process took my mind off my worries by focusing it on something else. It allowed me a change to practice using pastels (a medium upon which I would like to improve).
Have you done any art journaling? What has it been like for you to do?
