Art Journal Pages

  • March 01, 2016
I think I mentioned this somewhere in my Grit And Grace recaps, but I've been working on the same journal for well over 10 years. It's a standard hard cover sketch book and while ample, it isn't  THAT big. But I've had this idea in my head, that I can't start a new one until the old was complete.

Imagine my surprise that this isn't a universally held idea.

I have been liberated from my constrictive thinking. Yay!
I now have 4 or 5 journals going. And when one doesn't call to me, one of the others usually does.  Working simultaneously has not only freed me but also resulted in being far more productive ...actually DOING... rather than thinking about it. Go figure!

Here then are some recently worked on pages. They may or may not be finished.

  1. Amanda gets ticked with my 'journals everywhere'. I find it useful to have my creativity or lists in separate books!

    1. Perhaps a specific shelf for all of them? And I totally agree. I am loving the flexibility of different journals. I don't know why I didn't do this 20 years sooner!
