I love using transparent items in my art journal. They offer a unique and fun element throughout the pages of an art journal. Transparency provides layers you can see.
Some clear items you can include in your art journal;
- Print on saran wrap with acrylic paint
- Use clear post it tabs
- Keep packaging that’s clear and colorful. Use it to add surprising bits and pieces.
- Use your gel plate to print on a transparency
Just as in art, being transparent in life has great benefits. While it’s important to have healthy boundaries when ‘putting yourself out there,’ there are so many benefits for those sharing and those listening. Being transparent and sharing your life experience with others helps to promote understanding, creates a sense of unity and a feeling we aren’t alone on this journey called life, and it helps us grow.
So maybe next time you share on social media, with a friend or a group, you want to stretch yourself and share something from your life experience and tool box. It just may make an amazing difference in another’s life.
Wishing you a beautiful day and warmest creative wishes.
