This is what I've been up to lately - a bit of focus on my journal. Journaling is just great and I'm gradually getting a feel for it. I love the way layer upon layer of 'whatever turns you on' is added to your pages, to make something that is so unique to you. It is only finished when you say so. This page of mine will maybe get some more words added later, when they come to me.
Have you visited Suziblu? It is ever inspiring to watch Suzi embellish her journal. Just when I'm thinking how beautiful it all looks, she will gesso over it and paint something equally cool over the top! You are in charge of what happens on your page. There is no censor and the only critic is you, if you choose to be one.
Speaking of being a critic - I would love to show you a self-portrait sketch that I also made in my journal, but it just doesn't look like me! I have left it there with words to that effect and will make another one soon. It's a good opportunity to make smiles at yourself in the mirror!
