Free art journal tutorial “Carefree” (Studio Time 23)

by | Blog - Tutorials | 10 comments

I’m free… Carefree…!

Feeling loose and carefree is the best feeling in the world…!
Just put all your thoughts aside and let your creativity and imagination take over…
Accept whatever happens without judgment…

This is what happened when I stop resisting what was going in my life and just surrendered to my art journal:
A carefree mixed media spread that makes me feel happy whenever I look back at it.
A good reminder to stop holding on so tightly!

Try it out for yourself and let me know with a comment below how it felt to let go!

Love to you my Creative Friend,
