INTENTIONALITY by Angela Bruch
Although INTENTIONALITY is not my personal word for the year it is definitely a word for our business. It speaks to our belief that yes life happens but we can still choose how we are going to handle it. I cannot allow my feelings to control my activities for the day - lets face it may only “feel” like doing nothing which if repeated daily will result in just that nothing.
I believe when it comes to creativity so many of us say; “someday I will create” and for many years my art was treated just like a hobby done on occasion as a way to unwind from my day job. After all of the things that had been put before my art were stripped away a pivotal point was reached and around the end of 2014 early 2015 the decision was made that I would create every day - either on a canvas or in a journal. What was created was not as important as the fact I was creating attached is a photo of one of my early journal pages - dates weren’t added at first but this is from around 2013. Looking at the page it looks like I took my tea bag and made splatters on the page, certainly a stretch to call art. Now fast forward to the 2019 page colorful paint was used, collage and also writing in my opinion a much nicer journal page. Looking back over my artistic journey both pages are equally important one represents the beginning of journaling the other the continued practice and how improvement occurs.
As we start 2020 perhaps you want to become intentional with your creativity and create every day. A great way to do that is by using the art journaling e-course created with my mentor Matt Tommey. To check out the course visit www.angelabruchart.com and connect on the link. As soon as you pay for the course Intentionality Increases Creativity you have immediate access. The course is broken down into 5 segments and a bonus video you are able to watch the course as many times as needed. Once you take the course I would love to hear feedback on how you put the teachings into practice. Happy Journaling!!
