What does Art Journaling Do?
Art Journaling helps to reduce stress. It is a tool to help with self-growth. It allows for your brain to relax and release the mental thoughts that are causing anxiety. An art journal exercise is a relaxing activity that involves color, pattern, texture and self-expression. Using an art journal can increase your artistic expression and freedom.
Art journaling can help to focus and manifest goals. The entire art journal can include inspirations, quotes, pictures, travel, a dream home, or a dream job etc.
