Hi all, this is actually a real live art journal page I created awhile ago, like in Feb 08. Yes and I haven't really made another.

So I know I have a huge problem with feelings that I don't know what to do when it comes to art journaling. I am pathetic. I love the concept, but again, feel inadequate.

I started 2009 with a new blog, this one, and said my new word this year is "Begin". But I have not. I have tons of materials, that, will never be a problem. I just don't think I can do it. I feel that I need to impress everyone, and I know that is totally silly.

So in May I am taking a Teesha Moore Journaling class. Then, I will be forced to journal, and being led by the queen of journaling, I should be able to breakout of my shell. (I hope). I have a friend that used to work where I do and is a scrapbook queen, and she has invited me to her crops she has at her house, but that is too frou frou for me. Too structured. I need to go nuts, but I still fear Rejection! There, I think I have hit on it. Why?? Ridiculous.

You just need to get messy and let things flow! ; )

Take two or three colors of paint and slap it on a spread and make some background pages already, okay?!?

If you can't think of anything, just do the backgrounds for now and go back when you're ready.

The water's fine once you jump in... lol!

It's very intimidating sometimes, working with a journal page. It's something I think everyone who journals has to get past. That's why there are so many people out there teaching, because it's hard! Teesha's probably going to free you up quite a bit! It's good that you're investing in yourself like this. Rock on!
