If you've ever shown your art journaling/sketches, etc to family/friends who don't "get" what you're doing....well, all I can say is it's pretty disheartening. The last time I showed some of my art to a family member, the response was "Is this what you spend your time doing?" That was it....no comment on the subject. BUT...the joy of creating is not something I'm about to give up.
From now on, anything I create, I'll keep in my tribe... people who love art journaling and all that goes with it. I'll keep posting it here on my blog....no one sees it anyway, and anyone who does would probably be an art journaler. Luckily my sister "gets" it, and she's also my best friend, so we have the pleasure of sharing our learning experiences with each other and online. Thank God for all the art journaling groups on Facebook and all the wonderful artists online who teach us!
