Share the Joy - Journal Rediscovery

This is the second time this week that I have taken an hour or so just for myself and my art journal.

It is coming back to me how important a tool this mediative, creative and self-focused time is for my well being.

This morning was very cool outside so all the windows in the house are open. Glorious fresh air and breezes wafting in.

I had my coffee at hand, tunes on Pandora, Little Happy watching over me, 


and time that I took for my self.


A painted background using stencils, spray inks, glorious Golden fluid acrylics, Faber Castell markers, and a few collage pieces...


turned into this


Moon over Rock Being.

I love it so much !!!


And I have to say that after taking that time for myself, I can already feel my mood improving !

Here's to the joy of creating, and to listening to that artist self loud and clear !

Happy Thursday, Beautiful Ones !
