This was a powerful week for me in the 2nd week of Get Messy Lists. Each of the prompts elicited a soul connection of some sort. When I look at each page now, I am empowered!
The first prompt I tackled was super powers I’d like to have. Easy peasy: Communicating with animals and being an incredible and inspiring artist touching many lives. Artists represented are Leonardo DaVinci, Paul Klee, Gustav Klimt and Vjatseslav Mjod.
The next list prompt is Loves of my Life, and I also used one of the art prompts, list on something unusual. The above prompt and this one are visual lists, no words beyond the subject.
I used another art prompt for this next list”When I grow up”: an animal letters font! It is perfect for my answer.
The prompt “I want to go…” invites physical places. I took it in another direction (and I used the art prompt to use my favorite font).
And I used the classic list for the last one. As I wrote this list I realized how profoundly I’ve changed in the past 10 years. Wow!
I will look at this journal and these lists over and over for years and be inspired with each viewing. What treasures an art journal can hold. If you journal in any way, do you journal in an inspiring way?
Have a wonderful weekend my friends! And as always, thank you so much for tuning in and witnessing my creative growth as an artist.

What exactly is art journaling?
Ambiguous answer: whatever you want it to be! More specific answer: Art journaling is a notebook that you fill with drawings, paintings, thoughts, words, lyrics, photos, magazine cutouts and random ephemera from your life and events. It can be where you practice art techniques or sketch out big projects. It can be your journal where all things creative + all things emotional intersect. You can put in pretty things you find and want to keep or it can be where you collect and process through your deepest, darkest thoughts. It is where art and journaling meet.
