I am a great believer in sharing my creative process! That is how Drawn Together was created in the first place- through journals and blogposts.
As I build the journal series, I will be sharing my notes and process here and welcome your feedback and your photos!
Your contribution is invaluable and may find its way to my book! Contact me at Email.
JOURNAL SERIES in progress
Part 2a: INSPECTION/HISTORY: ROOTS
Part 2b: INSPECTION/HISTORY: PHOTOS
Part 4: REFLECTION: ESTEEM HEART
We are all faced with challenges, every day. Some may seem insurmountable. Some keep coming back. Sometimes we find ourselves in the most difficult challenge of our lives (as in my Dad’s stroke), and sometimes just getting out of bed is a challenge,
Focus on 3-4 things that are blocking you, that hinder you, frustrate you, nag at you, keep you from living your life peacefully.
E.g. Anxiety, Fear, Money, Low Self-esteem, Trust, Doubt
Write for 10 minutes in your journal about these blocks.
On a drawing/photocopy of an anatomical heart, write your main words repeatedly throughout the nooks and crannies.
Color the heart, cut it out and glue it on a card stock.
Write sentences about your blocks coming out from the vessels.
FLOWING OUTWARD. LET GO. RELEASE.
I came up with this exercise last tear and I have found it very powerful and I repeat it as often as I need to. It does release tension. Many of my students have found it powerful as well.
Mikki’s beautiful piece. She accidentally drew a sentence going INTO the heart, so she drew a cork! Genius!
