Journaling visually together is a beautiful way to process feelings for children and adults. It also helps express hopes and dreams to loved ones and ourselves. In the video below, creative alchemist, artist, storyteller, writer, and facilitator Sarah Greenman graciously shares a tutorial for making a visual collage within the framework of a journal practice.
“I am an avid journaler. I make it a point to sit down every day and put pen to paper. But sometimes, I just don’t feel like writing. And some days my analytical mind gets in the way of my creative flow. That’s when I turn to collage as another form of journaling.
The thing that I love about collage is that I don’t need to come up with my own words and imagery. I have full permission to use the words and images created by others! Instead of being the source material, I get to step into the role of curator, tapping into what speaks TO me rather than speaking FOR me.
Please enjoy this fun and accessible video tutorial, which takes a look at my personal collage process, shared within the framework of a journal practice.”
