Creating in Faith - Change and Reflections - End of Season Episode - on the Road
Welcome to the Episode 162. Today's word is Change and Reflection and is the last in this series of Creating in Faith.   I decided to change up the format of the Creating in Faith episodes to include more focus on working in your Art Journal and I will be creating weekly videos to give you some hints and tips for working in your art journal and spending the creative time on yourself, looking at ways in which you express and the positive impact that art and creativity has on your health and well-being. What to expect in Season 2 -  Each month you will get a short video on making an art journal using the supplies and materials that you have around you - this pushes you to be resourceful, to use those supplies that you said were for special, and start using them on yourself.  It can also get you completing projects that you have around you (I have a few half finished art journals laying around), use recycled materials - there are so many creative ways in which you can incorporate recycled materials.  Available on my Patreon Blog   Each month you have an overall word to ponder.  Podcast Episode with a word for the week Weekly art journal page play - you can incorporate the weekly word in your journal.  The emphasis is on thinking and caring about how you feel, identifying needs and possible systems that you need to put in place for your own journey.  There will be hints for working in your art journal.   Available on my Patreon Blog There are so many FREE ways in which you can support the podcast and the work that I do on some of the other channels and it is always a blessing when you connect - listening each week and leave a comment, Subscribe to any or all of my channels, visit the YouTube channel (remember to hit the notification bell) Let me know how the content impacted you and if you were inspired to make changes/additions to your work or life.
