Another Art Journal Page


Hope everyone has had a great week.  
This week I am showing another art journal page from my Journaling by Fives journal.  (You can see more pages here.) Paint, collage, pen work - lots of layers.  Sometimes it's hard to share what you do in your art journal (and other creative work.)  At least it is for me. I enjoy sharing here and with PPF, but it's hard to share with people who may not understand or appreciate art journaling/art/etc. Seems like I was trying to tell myself it's OK.

Do you have a hard time sharing your work?

Linking up with Paint Party Friday.

  1. I LOVE what you have made, it has a great message, and it is also allowed to tell yourself that all is okay, and art journaling is a great way to do it. Nice to see you again, and have a great weekend, hugs, Valerie

  3. I don't have a hard time sharing or showing my work but I get upset when something sells and I have to let it go to a new home 😃

  4. I do sometimes feel vulnerable in sharing my work... it is a form of therapy for me, so putting it out there often feels like I am showing the world the depths of my heart. I know it does not translate as that to the viewer, but still, I feel vulnerable for I know what is behind it all. But I do agree with your message - it really does not matter what others think... but sometimes harsh comments hurt.

  5. I think to some degree we all find it difficult to put ourselves out there in that way. It is like standing in Time Square and taking your clothes off. One piece at a time! Well you know what I mean. But stepping out is a neccesary part of growing as an artist and a person.

    Your piece is beautiful, never stop creating or sharing!

  6. I also think that at some point or at some degree we all are self conscious in showing our art. It is truly what I love about PPF. This is a safe environment. It take courage to step out to show what you have created from your heart and soul. Your journal page is powerful piece and I love it.

  7. Dearest Laney your work is so lovely! Paint party friday is one of the safest places to show your work as an artist! I have been feeling the same way with instagram.... I am becoming more selective of what I share there. I feel freer on my blog since people choose to come to it and can leave if they please. Your journal page is wonderful and wise! Thanks for trusting us to share!
