I received a set of journals from Ellie Claire in order to facilitate my review, however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Give the Gift of Journaling With Art Journals
Over the years, I have discovered the many benefits of journaling and have shared it with my daughter. She has an artistic side to her and has always enjoyed drawing and doodling. That is what peaked her interest in the new artwork that people have begun creating with Scripture. The artwork that many are creating is absolutely beautiful and truly makes the message of the scriptures shine.
I recently received three art journals from Ellie Claire and instantly realized what wonderful gifts these would make this holiday season. These journals are great gift ideas for anyone interested in journaling or in learning lettering. After careful examination of each journal, I can’t wait to share with you my favorite features of each journal and let you know where you can purchase these for yourself or those on your Holiday Shopping List.
