Get Messy | Belonging

Reconnecting with something that I loved many years ago: art journaling. 

I'm playing along with the Get Messy Art Journaling community and their current theme: belonging. 

Why art journaling? 

It makes me happy. It stretches me. It's playful. I need a hobby. It's something that teaches/reminds me I don't have to know the end before I begin. It's another way to tell stories. 

Why not?

      Hi! I'm actually using a bunch at the same time. This is in one I started many, many years ago. It's large but I can't see what the brand actually is (I think it might be a drawing one). It's 9x12 from Strathmore I think?

    I went on Vicki’s website but it doesn’t show she sells material. Her design team uses her paints/stencils but again no direction where/how to buy. Any clues? Txs!
