Inspiration Tuesday - Art for Healing

Tuesday, September 27, 2011
Most know that I am not only a scrapbooker of life, but I am also a Life Journaler who expresses in her art and creates a mixture of art journaling and a diary which I like to call my Visual Chronicles.  I also use digi art to create a LOT of wall art for our home and as gifts, but will save that for later.

Today I'd like to talk to you about using art and scrapping as a way of healing.  I believe expressing yourself in your art and getting feelings and emotions out using it is one of the best ways to start a healing process.  Many times I put all that negative on there and then paint over with possitive thoughts and words.  Sometimes I just need to reinstate my positive affirmations too.  It all helps!

I posted a little 2 weeks ago about needing some of these affirmations in front of me.  I created the page, printed it and put it above my desk.  It was filled with words of wisdom as a reminder to myself daily.  You can see it here.
I also felt the need to create a page about the negative feeling so I could get it out of my system and put it away.

Next time life decides to throw lemons at you, dig into your stash and journal it and make some lemonade. :)  I can just about guarantee you will feel better after.

Here are some samples from myself and a few of my "Creative Hearts" that I share with.  And if you so choose to share yours, please link us up here so we can give you a big cyber space hug and some love on taking that first step towards healing within. And it's ok, not to share too!  Took me a lot to post this one, but when I shared with a few very special friends, some of them were inspired to try it and have said how much it helped them too.  So my wish is to reach out to more and share.  We all know life is not always a bed of roses, but if we didn't have the bad with the good, the good would not be so wonderful when it did happen.

By me on a very sad day of realization
But this was me the very next day rejuvenated by releasing those negative feelings!
