Oh, the texture and grungy goodness on this journal page! It’s simple and yet so rich.
A little texture paste and gesso can make such a layered impact on your page.
My goal was to only use just a few things and simplify my process, to not overthink anything and just relax with my journal. — Mission accomplished.
I needed some space in my brain… with so many things to do on my “to do” list, and so many decisions to make… I was feeling overwhelmed.
When this happens for me, I can always hear my therapist’s voice…” Shawn simplify things” just take one thing at a time. It seems logical, and so simple and yet when we’re in the middle of all the things… it can be hard to see clearly.
So I went to my journal and wrote out one thing to do. … that’s it and when I got that done, I wrote another thing. One step at a time.
As soon as I simplified…. things got a little easier to see….
I share more about it in the video. Have fun watching!

Enneagram – I mentioned in the video that I would leave the link where you can get a free personality test/type.
I completely trust the site… My son is a certified Enneagram coach and it is his site.
You can go HERE to take the test and learn a little more. In the upper right corner you can take the free assesment test.
If you take it I would love to know what type you are. I’m a 5!
