Silent Messages: how saying nothing can say it all….
Have you ever experienced something that you wanted to create a page about? Did the idea that someone might see that page and read your journaling stop you from creating that page? Have you ever stopped yourself from creating a page because the content was too sad? Do you feel like all you can only share your pages if they are happy?If you answered yes to any of those questions, this is a class you won’t want to miss. Sometimes the word art JOURNAL can lead us to feeling like we need to have writing on all of our pages explaining what our page is about. Truthfully, there are a lot of times when journaling leaves us over exposed, and so rather than putting things on paper, we choose not to journal at all. In this class, you will learn ways to share your story without using journaling. As part of your UNjournaling exploration, I will share a technique using Creative Paperclay as a medium to add texture to your pages. We’ll explore the use of single words on a page to trigger for YOU the moment you were in, and allow the silent message speak to others in whatever way they can relate. Even in art journaling, sometimes less is actually MORE. Join Rachel Whetzel in exploring new areas of creating that free you to say what you need to without spilling your guts in public.
