Summer Reading

 Time to talk books!
Just a recap.
I chose three books to read over the summer months.
The Creative Entrepreneur by Lisa Sonora Beam
this i know - notes on unraveling the heart by Susannah Conway
The Fire Starter Sessions by Danielle LaPorte 

Topic: Summer Reading Book Club
I will be incorporating each one of these books into an art journal.
cover to cover
I do hope you will get inspired to do the same!

( A DIY Visual Guidebook for making Business Idea Real )

This book takes the reader on an inner journey of creative exploring to discover
the true vision and empower the reader to take an idea and make it real. 
The author uses "visual" journaling techniques and prompts to meet the three 
basic challenges faced by many creative entrepreneurs.
This book is geared to teach the reader the fundamentals of building a 
business that matches their creative dream.
The book is loaded with beautiful journal photos, prompts, step by step, 
left brain/ right brain approach,  business focusing, underlaying internal issues, 
and strategic planning methods.

The start to setting up my visual journal.

I was very inspired by this journal prompt. 

I thought the butterflies were a perfect introduction... into this journey.
