Meet the Creative Team- Britt Posted on 11 Mar 03:00 , 1 comment

We have got some really amazing ladies on our Happy Place Creative Team. They help us give you magical content each month and we wanted to give you the chance to get to know them! We asked each of them a few artsy questions so we can dig a little deeper into how they became part of the Art Journaling the Magic Crew!
 

Today let’s meet: Britt

What is your first (or favorite) childhood memory of Disney?

My first memory is standing on the headboard of my bed with my sister and watching the Disneyland fireworks from my bedroom window. 

Where is the most magical place in the parks for you?

King Arthur's Carousel. I feel so much history and Walt's presence when I am riding the carousel, it is truly magical to me. Oh and standing near the firehouse. 

How has art impacted your life?

Art helps me relax from life and slow down a little. If I am super stressed then I need to calm myself down before I start drawing or it will show it the final product. I have to tell myself that the finished piece doesn't need to be perfect, I just need to try. 

Why do you love Art Journaling the Magic?

I love Art Journaling the Magic because it has given me the courage to go out of my comfort box and try new things. I see Disneyland in a different way, it has become more a lifestyle than a casual experience. I love the friends that I have made through Art Journaling the Magic. Friends that encourage each other and it isn't a competition with each other's art. We help and encourage each other with our style of creating. 

How did you become a part of the Art Journaling the Magic family?

I saw an ad for a retreat and knew that I wanted to attend. I attended my first retreat in 2015 and I was hooked. I have over 40 Golden Journal Books that I have sketched in, not all of them are full and I am okay with that. It is about the process. I have new Disney sketch friends because of the retreats. I was asked to be on the Creative Team a few years ago and I have loved every minute of it. 

What inspires you to create?

What is your favorite thing to draw?

Mickey apples. In fact, that is what lead me to Art Journaling the Magic. There were apples on Tangie's business card.
