Mixed Media Art Journal - Be kind, Be You | How body shaming affected me | Video Tutorial

Since so many of you requested for mixed media video tutorials, I decided to finally start the Mixed Media Art Journal Series, that I had been procrastinating for a really long time. This art journal is all about my thoughts, feeling, my blessings, my hardships, the things I believe in and some of my life stories. I hope you enjoy watching these. 

This story is about "Body Shaming" which I had to go through as a child and as an adult and even now it hasn't stopped completely. I know so many of us go through some form of body shaming at some stage in life and this is my attempt to connect with you and let you know that you are not alone.

Watch the video here

Don't forget to let me know what you think of the series. If you would like to hear more of my life stories or if you would rather just like the music :)

I am playing along the Creative Artiste's Challenge 19 - Anything Goes
