Closed Doors …or Word Emesis

My art journal is not only my technique-play book, it is also my way to express feelings and often an outlet for emotions. I think art is an amazing therapist- LOL- so much cheaper actually when a real one ;) This page was done after I was REALLY upset a couple of weeks ago – LOL- doesn’t happen to often- but hey…can happen ;)

Lot’s of Liquitex Spray Paint over Stencils on here and then I played with the Liquitex Paint Markers-I love how you can paint with them over magazine pages, use them for writing or sketching and to blend areas in.

I wanted a grungy look here ….I guess I archived it. Actually I want this page as a wall of my studio- that would be cool- LOL.

If you art journal would you agree that it helps you deal with emotional stress better?

    Oh my! Truly an influential art journal page that really makes a statement. Creative and grungy. Bold and powerful. Love it.

    And I fully agree with you: Getting creative is really the easiest, cheapest and most fun type of therapy!

    You can say things to your journal that are best left unsaid to someone.

    YES! As you pointed out, cheaper than therapy although my insurance won’t reimburse me for art supplies.
