Notes from Your Creative Spirit 

19_160A Mini Art Journaling Project

Are there words that you find particularly meaningful? Words that find their way into most, or maybe all of your artwork? As artist Nichole Rae says, those are “the words you carry.” In this mini art journaling project, Nichole Rae shows you how to create a small journal full of the words you carry. Carry this journal with you to make a page at a time, when you feel inspired, or take this journal with you to be inspired when you most need it.
