The Inspired by Frida Journal draws from the wisdom and artwork of Frida Kahlo. The 200 decorative pages are divided into eight sections that encourage exploration of the concepts of freedom, reverence, inspiration, dharma and acceptance. The beautiful full-colour illustrations, poetry, positive affirmations and words of inspiring wisdom throughout the journal encourage creative self-expression, self-reflection and exploration of your creative destiny. This is your journal: use it to write and rewrite your creative destiny, to tell the love story of YOU. Fill the pages with your essence, your love, your hopes and all your very precious heart dreams. Write and draw on the pages at will: over the art and through the pages with paint, collage and doodles. Play, daydream and pour out all of your wild untamed ideas.
