Overcoming Art Journaling Fear

As I’ve shared my art journaling passion with others, I’m finding that a lot of folks are afraid to start art journaling because they don’t think they’re very good at art.

Now, no offense to the folks who came up with that idea, but the more I’ve thought about it, the more I don’t like that idea. For the most part, I like who I am.
