When I asked my chiropractor for suggestions on how to improve my posture he wrote out a list of exercises. I thought it might help to impress them upon my mind (and inspire me to action) if I created a journal entry listing his recommendations. It isn't merely the art journaling that impresses the listing for a lasting impression, but the regular reminder as I flip back-and-forth through my art journal pages which reminds me (again) to work on the exercises and improve my posture.
I prepped the background using tempura paint which is becoming my preferred background media because it doesn't cause the pages to stick together in the HOT South Texas climate.
