There have been several times that I have been blindsided and devastated in my life. It’s at these times we have to step back and take a breath. It feels like we will never be the same and we never are. We do have a choice to work through our emotions of anger, fear, instability, and uncertainty so we can grow stronger.
This is where an art journal/altered book comes in. This is your safe place to let out your frustrations. You can examine your reactions and begin to write a new chapter in your story.
With all that is happening in our country and the high emotions, we need a way to reflect and relax. Painting with watercolors might just be the ticket!
If you haven’t tried painting in awhile, it will feel weird & maybe silly to play with watercolors but give it a try. After your page or paper dries, write down how you felt while you were painting and what parts you like.
Take time to play, relax, and process so your feelings don’t get bottled up.
