Keeping An Art Journal

I recently read this post and was inspired to actually create some art in my art journal.... 

I have this beautiful, handcrafted art journal made with thick, luscious paper that my parents bought for me, oh... probably about TEN years ago. And up until a couple weeks ago it was completely blank. I have this incredible and irrational fear of drawing or writing in beautiful books - as if I might ruin them by putting something in there that is not perfect.

Well I have learned a very important lesson recently and that is I will NEVER achieve perfection. Never, ever, ever... and so there is absolutely NO REASON to not write or draw or WHATEVER in a beautiful, blank journal. 

So I started to write and draw things... they are not perfect but there is something wonderful about creating art without any fear that it won't be "good enough"....
