Pick up a word / phrase mixed media page

I didn't pick up a word for the year... Normally I do but this year I didn't yet.

When I was playing around in my art journal I was also thinking that it is ok to not have a word... maybe I want to be a little extra and give myself permission to pick up a whole bunch of words or phrases that works for me this year. So I decided to share a bit of my process with you and gave you a freebie if you feel 'wordless' like me.

Pick up a phrase or two or three that resonates with you.

Try your hand at a mixed media collage page with a bit of watercolor paint. In this video, I will show you how to make a page in your art journal. Using collage techniques.
