This is My Life, and I Journal-ed It!


I think it is safe to say that most art journal-ers make pages/journals around the theme of their lives at some point.  An art journal page can be a sort of commentary, illustration or commemoration of an event, or just  “A Day in the life of____”. We not only record memories, but thoughts, impressions, rants and raves. Sometimes we just cover a page to allow some breathing space in our souls!
