Journaling is one of my favorite ways to capture many of my positive, happy and inspiring thoughts and sentiments 💖. This one is just that! 🤩😍. ... “Do things for people not because of who they are or what they do in return, but because of who you are.” – Harold S.

Oh man, it has been a-g-e-s that I paid my art journals a visit and boy, did it feel good! I truly missed this kind of expression and combining it with my own illustration is even better! These journals have always been a safe place to express my deepest feelings and give them a place to be, to stay and to breath. The last couple of months have brought all kinds of memories and emotions to the surface and I’m using art to express them. I realized that I’m a very visual person and even in therapy I mostly speak in images and with the help of images to explain and tell things. This is how desperation feels like for me- a prison made of bones, a ribcage filled with a plethora of hands that want something from me- but I don’t know how to give it to them. Acknowledging is key, though.

Did you know that I have a website? I do! You can find it at OlwenWilson.com. I took the leap this year to stop hiding behind my old business name and come out as me. . Maybe you’ve seen me sharing about an upcoming in-person workshop called Exploring Creative Connection. This is the first time since being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis that I’ve offered something like this. I used to teach yoga and my classes would sell out months in advance. Often times they would sell out in minutes. Then I got sick. Like I didn’t know if I’d still be here today because the pain was so bad kinda sick. And while I was dealing with trying to get better, or as better as one can get while living with a chronic illness, I found comfort in my writing and visual journaling practices. . This summer I offered a workshop called Time For You To Write To Heal and it was a hit! The people I worked with were able to work through stresses and struggles in their lives, see a situation from a different perspective and consider how they offer themselves compassion. This course will return early next year bigger and better. . But sometimes words alone are not enough to help you work your way through things. Art and visual communication can make you feel things in ways that words just can’t touch on their own. That’s why I’m offering the upcoming visual journaling workshop called Exploring Creative Connection. We’ll spend a few hours together creating and making and connecting with each other but more importantly taking time to connect with yourself. . It’s already half filled with a great group of humans and I’m on the lookout for some more. Care to join us? . Visit my website to see all the details and register to secure your place at the table. . Also, feel free to sign up for my newsletters so that I can send you stories and you’ll learn when registration opens for Time For You To Write To Heal. (The visual journaling workshop compliments it nicely.) . #visualjournaling #selfcompassion #writetoheal #artjournal #rheumatoidarthritis #ra #chronicillness #livingwithchronicillness #makeandcreate #creativity #intuition #healingjourney #mixedmediajournal #beyourbestadvocate #creativejournal

I wrote these words in the days after my nephew died in 2013 of an overdose. This was in response to a quote from eleanor roosevelt. " one's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility" . I wrote, Processing Jeremy's life and death and coming more and more to accept this storyline is a very thin line. Were it not for a choice here and a choice there ... and the choices i make everyday ... my story would be much different. . I look at my wonderful family and i say, "how did i get so lucky" yes, sometimes it is just serendipity but i also believe my soul has been choosing well even when i lacked the conscious awareness of those choices. Now, the more i wake up, the more i actively choose the steps that keep me in alignment with that very thin line. . . . #artjournaling #visualjournaling #creativejournal #creativepractice #creativeprocess #artastherapy #artheals #artjournal #visualjournal

Here is the centerfold of my junk journal. I still have a couple more spreads to do along with finishing the cover. I most often save that for last. How about you? Do you decorate your journal covers before or after filling the inside pages? #junkjournaling #handmadejournal #journallove #artjournaling #visualjournaling #citrasolvpaper #germanscrap #paperscraps #cutandpaste #pressedflowers #danielsmithgoldgesso #arthelpsmebreathe #mixedmediacollage #usewhatyouhave #createdaily #ilovepaper #patty_szymkowicz

Glad I repurposed these various papers as pages for my junk journal instead of sending them off to be recycled.

I'm working on some pages in my altered book art journal for my class at the Duxbury Senior Center. We are two weeks into our 4 week project. Week one we prepared our old books and this week we played with gelli plates to make our own collage papers. I'm trying to jam as much info about art journals and mixed media supplies as I can into this class!🤪 And look, I already found a use for some of my cool fabric samples! . #alteredpages #alteredbook #oldbookrevival #oldbooks #mixedmediaartist #mixedmediaart #fabricsamples #collagefodder #artsupplies #artpractice #artprojects #teaching #artforeveryone #reducereuserecycle #paintedbookpages #paintandpaper #oldpaper #paperaddict #paperstash #artjournalpage #artjournaling #artjournal #artjournaleveryday #markmaking #artplay #visualjournal #visualjournaling #art2life #fish

Spent a significant chunk of the morning lost in @mandyfariello ‘s quirky, humorous images. . Each witty little piece is designed on an old library catalog card, materials pulled from old books. . Wowza. What a way to re-use materials! 🧡✨

I don’t always use the word “whence” but when I do, it’s in regards to art. 😂🎨 . But really, in this season of habit with @getmessyartjournal I’ve been pushing against my own nature, my resistance to habit, even though upon closer evaluation I realize I do have habits that I’ve put in place to help me be more efficient; little things like putting my purse / keys in the same spot, setting up the coffee pot the night before, etc. Routines like those help me keep my sanity when other things get busy. . So the real question is Why does it feel daunting to commit to 40+ days of a habit when I already know I’m not far off from achieving that habit anyway?? 🤔 It’s like I don’t want to be bosses around by the commitment. 😂 So juvenile. 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . . . #getmessytcl #gmseasonofhabit #getmessyhabit #messymischief

My mom gave me this quote and I thought it fit this spread. It was nice working in my journal. I have been making art but nothing in my journal. I needed to step back to make sure my journaling didn’t get stale, if you know what I mean. Should I post the art I’m not putting in my journal on my stories? . #artjournal #art #journal #artjournaling #mixedmedia #artsy #instaart #journaling #creative #paint #artjournalpage #mixedmediaart #doitfortheprocess #visualjournaling #createeveryday #arttherapy #visualjournal #creativejournaling #gmseasonofhabit #shinebright #artlife #create #artistic #creativelifehappylife #memyselfandi #illustration #getmessyartjournal #markmaking

Loving this spread in my Gelli JunkAdori. If you’re not following Robyn McClendon of @rarebirds , you really don’t know what you’re missing. I was looking for a way to put this coffee dyed claim check in my book. Love this pocket idea.

The freedom to be real, messy, imperfect is authenticity. Creativity gives us this gift by letting go of the end result= product. Allowing the process to lead us by just being present and aware is a great fun way to approach life and your art . #creativerebels #beauthentic #getmessy #makeart #creativechanneling #artheals #creativewealth #spiritguidedart #justforthefunofit #dowhatyoulove #followyourbliss #divineflow #makesomething #creativejournaling #visualjournaling #shamanicartist #shamanicart #creativejourney #createalifeyoulove

In a past story, I shared a few sheets of mixed media paper that were painted with gouache. I spent about 45 minutes cutting up that paper into various shapes, including rectangles, circles, arches, and half circles. This is the end result with those shapes. It was meditative putting this collage together. It was a lot like piecing a puzzle without any guidance. I could really see myself getting into this and I'm already planning different colors to use together. Again, another spread inspired by a course by @lisacongdon. . . . . . . . . . #art #artjournal #artjournaling #artjournalpage #craft #creative #artjournalpages #creativepage #mixedmediajournal #creativelife #creativelifehappylife #makersmovement #doitfortheprocess #creativejournaling #creativejournal #visualjournaling #journalart #artjournaleveryday #artjournaljunkie #beboldbecreativebeyou #yearofcreativehabits #carveouttimeforart #womenartists #journalcommunity #journalingcommunity #getmessian #create #createcultivate #gmseasonofhabit

A visual journal spread from one of my journals. On the facing page, not shown, I had written this down: “She came here with nothing but a handful of seeds and the slimmest of instructions to ‘use your gifts and dreams for good’. “ From the creation story of Turtle Island and Skywoman as told by Robin Wall Kimmerer in Braiding Sweetgrass. 💗 . . . #visualjournaling #inmyjournal

Travel • Wanderlust • Go • Journey • whatever it means to you, do it! I’m not sure what I like more about this piece, the vintage paper, the crackle paste or the inks and how they flowed just like a sandy ocean.... it just brings me peace...just add sunshine and flip flops and it’s all set. #junkjournalsept hosted by @dust_to_roses @februaryandjune @thehappycolourcraver day 14/30 #mixedandstitched #mixedmedia #texture #journaladdict #JournalCommunity #JunkJournals #JunkJournal #junkjournalchallenge #junkjournaling #VisualJournaling #ArtJournal #ArtJournaling #JunkJournalJunkies #mixedmediaart #mixedmediagirl

As requested [thank you @joanatater ], here's the first sketch I made of the girl on the beach when I started drawing. I was a little embarrassed by it then but I now I needed to get the pencil on the paper if I ever wanted to get better. I guess it's true for so many activities, first we tend to suck but if we stick to it and practice a lot we're able to improve. I'm not embarrassed by it now, it's part of my journey as an artist. It's not something I'll look at all the time but I acknowledge it exists. [This is almost a 4 year span] I know I still have a lot to improve but it's nice to see that I was able to improve and that I keep on practising and figuring out which methods work best for me. In the end, I don't intend to create life-like drawings, I have photography for that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #drawingofday #womenwithpencils #weareillustration #friendsofillustration #narrativeart #artonline #artistsofinstagram ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #illustrationarts #visualjournaling #learningtopaint #practicenotmagic #getmessyartjournal #journallove ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #artjournaleveryday ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lineartwork #pencildrawingsketch #pencildrawing #artistjourney #pencilsketch #girlonthebeach

When we start depending on someone else for our happiness, we start expecting a lot which in turn may sometimes disappoint us. So simple rule is to be happy and content with ourself and we will not have reason to be overthinking about such disappointments. . #fancy_jabalpuriya #2019diaries #fabcraftancevlogschallenges #calligraphersinindia #artistofindia #tagtheartistsgroup #brustro #thehungrycreatives #artistbyheart #artphilosophydt #artbar29feature #calligraphyquotes #artistoninstagram #handletteting #lettering #happylettering #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketchdaily #artjournal #visualjournaling #artjournalpage #indianartist #creativejournaling

Hope for Getting Re-stARTed today comes from the story of David and Goliath. ⠀ ⠀ For the Gal who feels like she’s on the fast-train to nowhere. ⠀ ⠀ For the one who feels like the walls are closing in. You’re running out of options. Time is of the essence. ⠀ ⠀ Guess what?⠀ ⠀ It might just take one small stone that ends up being the very thing to cause a complete turnaround. ⠀ ⠀ It’s happened before. Why not again? Why not you? Why not now? ⠀ ⠀ The same God who was with David is the very same God who walks with you today. ⠀ ⠀ So have you considered, “What if...?”⠀ ⠀ What if your story was the stone that could take down somebody else’s Goliath? ⠀ ⠀ What if everything was happening just as it should in order for you to finish strong? ⠀ ⠀ Friend, the world needs you. It needs your story. Trust God who is in control. ⠀ ⠀ 1. Walk forward⠀ 2. Seek wise counsel ⠀ 3. Be real. Be honest. Be YOU⠀ ⠀ It’s how you Get Re-stARTed trusting Him. ⠀ ⠀ #faithalive #getrestarted #faithdoodles #sketchnotes #visualjournaling #sermonnotes #bereal #yourstorymatters #godsstory

〚 What notebook do you use for journaling? 〛 Sometimes the regular #mtn takes more time and effort to fill in. So on days when i don't feel like journaling so much, i use the passport TN instead. What do you use? I'm curious to know what my followers are actually using since I'm mainly using the TN so i wonder if you all also use the same (╹◡╹✿)? Let me know in the comments down below. And also why do you use the notebook you're using for journaling?

CURRENT JOURNALS ❤️📝 Just a few works in progress! I have seven on the go at the moment, a mixture of travelers notebooks, junk journals, art journals and “use it up” journals. 📔 I like working in several journals using different styles and products, depending on what mood I’m in. Sometimes I feel like getting painty, other times I just want to stick, plonk and journal. ❌ I used to think that I was only “allowed” one journal because that’s what I had seen others do, and I think that mindset really messed up my early art journaling. But now I play in as many as I feel in the mood for and it’s made me a million times happier ❤️😊 How many journals do you like to work in at once?

hiya!! i'm back! hehe It was nice to be away of the phone for a couple of days, my hands thanked me because even taking the phone was not comfortable. 。So, I decided to try to draw a front house I like, i'm rubbish on drawing buildings really, or painting, with any art supply, but I gave it a try and yeah, not perfect but this was the idea xD 。 。I used the kuretake watercolours that came in The @thestationeryselection and the paper is from @frompaperchase 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 。 #meowpawjournals #artjournal #artaccount #journalart #buildingsketch #roses #artjournal #artjournaling #artjournalpage #visualjournaling #bujogeek #journalwithme #journaling #journallove #journal #journaladdict #dooles #inspiration #bosquejos #journallove #travelersnotebook #drawing #journaleveryday #bujonerd #artjournaleveryday #sketches #englishhouses #bujoinspire #bushes #rosebush

I've found myself finishing off my days as of late doing something I haven't done for months now. Journaling.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I put on some slow music, put my phone on silent and open up pockets that contain torn pages of paper, pick a few washi tapes to play with and write.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Journaling is like putting on old jeans. It will always feel familiar and at home.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ♥
