Creative Art Journaling

I’ve participated in two Creative Art Journalling courses this year at Amanda Scott Art Therapy and I’ve had an amazing time! Here are some of the pages I completed during the course (including hand binding the journal itself!).

This was the night we used clay through a meditation and then I created the pink ‘blossoming’ page.

Zen Doodles Art Swap

IMG_0427IMG_0482
I’m participating in a project called the “Art Therapy + Happiness” project this year. It in an online network of people practicing/interested in/passionate about Art Therapy. One of the projects I just completed was a “Zen-Doodle Art Swap”. We were given 11 names of people in the network and had to make one “zen-doodle*” for each of them and send it in the post- I just finished mine today and popped them in the post- it’s so exciting to be receiving mail that isn’t bills!

*a zen-doodle is a drawing that you don’t have a set plan for, you just start “doodling” and see what happens…
