Beautiful Again...

A Year in the Life of an Art Journal prompt for February 28th:

THE PROMPT: I'm Beautiful

THE SONG: Real Love by Regina Spektor

Written Lyrics HERE


I haven't touched my art journal in over a week. It was way over due. I had fun with this and was able to really write on this subject (gesso'd over it)...

Somebody asked me why I bother to journal and then cover the words. Well, I can keep my thoughts private that way, but I still get to express my feelings. I still struggle with writing down my thoughts due to a time when my privacy was totally violated and I felt like I had no place safe for my "voice". I don't always cover up my writing - it just depends.

This prompt really helped me to focus on how much I want to feel beautiful - physically, spiritually and emotionally. I don't want to be afraid to be who I am. I want to love people without wondering if they will love back. I want to laugh and feel free without worrying how I am perceived... I want to be BEAUTIFUL AGAIN.


  1. This is beautiful! I love journaling and covering that up. Feels freeing and safe all at the same time.

  2. What a beautiful book! Journeling can be so therapudic - something that I need to get back to.

  3. yay. love this. miss you so much. I have to do my blog!! Ikeep forgetting. We are both becoming the best us we could be. I know it. I feel it. Erin

  4. You made a very strong page Sherry! I too hide a lot of my journaling, but the fact that you know it is there (and only 'visible' for you) is a great feeling, and makes the page more precious isn't it?! It makes your page even more gorgeous!

  5. I love it Sherry!
    I love what you shared about your feelings too.

  6. You ARE beautiful!! And I can so relate about having a safe place to leave feelings, and heart messages. God knows they are there and that is all that matters.


  7. I put you on my Blog today!! Love your work:)

  8. I love your journal page and the fact that you gesso'd over your words. This is so much better than holding those words back. What a great idea! This could be just what I need for my own art journal. Thanks for sharing.
