What would you tell your younger self?

Historically, I haven't done a lot of journaling.  At first, I thought journaling was sketching out your art ideas into a book.  Last summer, I took a class on the topic and discovered that art journaling can be very personal and a pouring out of the soul.  Another class by Mou Saha introduced me to using gelatos in your artwork.

The result is this page about what messages you would send your younger self.  When I was a child I imagined I was receiving visions or messages from my future self (yes, I was an introverted oddball).  Now as an adult, I wonder what messages I should have sent to my younger self.  Lot's of encouragement and love.  Also, stay away from 'that' guy.

This page uses a lot of picture stamps, torn pages, and a transfer image of that 1950's girl that I have some photos of.  I had a swing like that in our backyard when I was little.

I am not happy with my hand writing, but, I am trying to wean myself off of using stamps for sentiments and getting more comfortable with writing stuff into journal pages with my own hand.

So, note to younger self - Work on your penmanship - LOL

What would you tell your younger self?
