Spark Your Creativity!
What is Journaling Circles?
Journaling Circles is a group of people (the circle) who like to journal, write, play and be creative. Some will sketch others will use paints, markers and maybe even glitter. Some come to the group and have no creativity whatsoever and leave inspired, uplifted and a new found feeling of creativity. Beginning April 2015, we now come together online to explore our personal creativity. We play and free write from prompts. We create shapes, designs and embellish our “works of art” with colored pens, pencils, watercolors, acrylic paints, glitter, stamps, stickers or whatever else you feel inspired to add and enhance your “art journal page.”
How Did Journaling Circles Start?
An inspired creation of Artist and Author Rosemary Augustine, Journaling Circles first began in Denver Colorado in 2001 and later moved to MeetUp.com September 2011 meeting in King of Prussia, PA and later finding a home at Panera Bread in Gateway Shopping Center, Wayne, PA. As the founder and facilitator of Journaling Circles, rather than disband the group when she relocated out of state to Florida in 2015, Rosemary Augustine took the group online with monthly email prompts, and a private Facebook page to share the group’s completed “works of art.”
What We Do Today
We write, we draw and we color. Spark your creativity by joining us each month for Journaling Circles. You don’t have to be a writer or even have a daily journaling practice to participate. Nor do you have to be creative – but you will once you participate. Each month is filled with creative exercises to spark your inner spirit and help with your art journaling practice, inspiring change, personal growth or improve areas in your life.
To participate in Journaling Circles, join the mailing list and our Facebook Group. Periodically prompts will be provided and you work from there…work at your own pace and post your finished “works of art” on our Facebook page when you’ve completed it. Converse with others in the group about what you created, it’s meaning to you and receive positive support for your work. Throughout the month additional creative inspiration is posted including new supplies, artistic ideas from others online or a quote to stimulate your creative juices.
Tools Needed to Participate
A journal (preferably one with blank pages),
pens – any color gel or ink pens,
colored pencils or markers – watercolor pencils are acceptable
your option to use watercolor or acrylic paints, glue, glitter and plenty of imagination.
