The reason I love to "work" in my art journal is that it completely strips away my stress. Without the pressure of creating art for a commission or for a gallery, I am free to just play with my art supplies and the devil may care who likes it or not.
Although journaling is personal, you may be curious about what other artists are putting into their art journals. That's why I love Somerset Studio's Art Journaling Magazine and why I was even more thrilled to be included in the July/August 2015 issue.
5 artists explain how art journaling alleviates stress (quotes all found in this month's magazine!)
