"What is normal anyway?  
Art Journal series 1 - class 6 by Dot Leathbridge

We all have things that we love and hate about ourselves. Sometimes it is so much easier to think of the things that we don't like.  So this page will let you think of absolutely everything that we see as negative about ourselves.  Then we'll cover it up!  Think of just one thing that is fantastic about ourselves and that will be the message that we remind ourselves of on this page."
