Dear Art Journal Maker,
Each time you sit down at the table to open up my pages, I see you.
Pen or paint brush in hand, I’m the holder of your dreams, your secrets, your longings, fulfilled and not.
I want you to know something. I got you. Right here, in these pages. You can do no wrong. You can’t mess up. Everything is just right.
You’re accepted with love and belonging. Don’t worry about the way your art looks, worrying yourself with having to do something every single day, or bettering your work. That’s not for here.
This is a place to give you a safe space to express yourself, to play, and to explore.
Don’t worry about judgement
So tell me your biggest secrets.
Lay it all on me. You will never be “too much”. Don’t hold anything back.
If you haven’t dusted me off and tucked me under your arm for a while,
or if I haven’t made it into the backpack to come along to the beach, no problem.
It’s okay if my pages get messy or are ugly or disorganized.
If my pages fall out or aren’t in order. Why would that matter?
You belong here.
Of all places, especially here.
Dance with your pencil across the page, lay the paint on thick and full of wild marks, make some mud, get stuck in the messy middle.
I can hold it all.
I’m strong enough, brave enough, and curious enough. Lay it all in these pages, unafraid, don’t hold back.
Let yourself be free here, in a way where nothing else lets you be this free.
