Art Journals: A Way Through Change

Remaking one’s self to better resemble the person within shouldn’t be so messy — but the truth is, it can shake up the people around you.

For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction. ~ Cynthia Occelli

Art journaling is one way to capture your journey and give it a more tangible presence — one that is easier to articulate to family and friends. More than that, it’s a way for you to explain things to yourself.

Best of all, art journal pages leave a breadcrumb trail you can go back and look at anytime you want.
