This is my journal

In this journal entry I used a jar stamp, pen, and watercolor.

Journaling is really the thing I Love the most about art. It gives me freedom to do whatever I want without feeling like it’s on an expensive canvas and supposed to be “something amazing.” It’s a great way to try out different materials, and gives you the freedom to tear it out if you hate it (though I don’t recommend that because you get to see how far you’ve come!). I also Love symbolism and color. What does the red jar mean to you?

“Don’t give up”

I used loose leaf tea, blue tissue paper, pen, acrylic paint, a key, marker, and paper.

There are always new doors to open. I like the idea that even though you feel like you’re stuck somewhere in your life, you can always find a key to the door you want. It might not always be easy or within reach, but it’s attainable. I love texture, and red represents passion, energy, and love. I love running my hand across a painting…because you’re not allowed to at galleries! 🙂 I encourage anyone who sees my art to feel the texture, because that plays a whole new role into the meaning of a painting.
