If you can make a dot, then you’re ready to be taken on a creative journey. Inspired by his internationally beloved picture book The Dot, Peter H. Reynolds begins this guided journal by giving you permission to draw just one dot and sign your name. Over the next several pages, you’re encouraged to take pleasure in making iterations of the dot: big dots, little dots, colorful dots, orderly dots, and scattered dots. Then you’ll move on to other mark-making activities, conquering perfectionism, loosening up, and letting your creativity flow. Throughout, Reynolds offers exercises that draw a connection between mindfulness and leaving your mark on the page. Whether you’re a timid beginner or a seasoned artist who needs a creative jolt to keep fresh and recharge, this journal is for you.
