I wanted to give you all a little update on my art journal challenge. Although I wrote about the challenge at the end of last year, I didn’t start the challenge until the new year. When I started the journal I remember feeling really daunted by the first blank page. Not wanting to mess it up and feeling the pressure to create something beautiful.
