Hi! My name is Diane Bleck and I am on a mission to UNLOCK CREATIVITY at Home, School, and Work.
Did you know that just 10 minutes of journaling, doodling, or coloring can reduce stress and increase creativity in your life?
Art Journaling is a daily practice of putting pen to paper to open your heart channel for ideas, insights, and inspirations.
For over 20 years, I've worked with businesses large and small around the world as a Graphic Facilitator, to help people bring their ideas to life. As a pioneer in this new and growing industry, not only have I been approached by top business leaders to direct their teams through innovation and strategy sessions, but I've also been asked to teach these powerful skills to other trainers, facilitators, and educators.
From the boardroom to the classroom, visual thinking is a powerful tool for problem-solving, critical thought, and strategic planning. In my private workshops, I've had the privilege of training thousands of people on the power of doodling at Home, School, and Work.
And now, for the first time, I am giving you a window into my personal doodle world by sharing the most sacred pages of my dream journals!
I've kept a journal since I was in 4th grade. I literally have over 200 journals filled with hopes and dreams. Recently, I have given a few people sneak peeks at these lovely pages. And the reaction has been amazing! People are asking how they can purchase the beautiful messages I have inside as art... and I never expected that.
The truth is, these pages were not created as art. They were created as a way to find balance in my busy life as a Graphic Facilitator. They were created to help me process my own learning, and I also hoped to pass them down to my children.
As the demand for my work grew, so did the responsibility to bring innovative and creative ideas to my clients. I was being asked to ignite entire organizations, transform corporate cultures, and simplify complex problems into elegant, simple, award-winning infographics and animated videos.
In order to bring that level of creativity to my clients, I had to be able to bring my full heart and soul to work... every single day. And that is how I developed the daily practice of journaling.
It was part of my self-care after a long training or part of my preparation for a huge international event.
At the time, I was actively seeking and reading groundbreaking material on enlightened leadership and business development, as well as tips and tools for improving how people think, live, and work.
What I discovered was, if I just spent 10 minutes a day creating a page inside my journal, everything shifted. I felt happy and calm, and I was learning something new at the same time! Plus, it helped me manage my energy and be more present, creative and focused for my clients.
So, for the first time ever, you too can peek inside my art journal as I flip through page-by-page! I truly hope my journal inspires YOU to DOODLE YOUR DREAMS.
