i have been having so much fun with my art journaling pages! each one is different, anything goes, no judgment!! i’m not one to follow rules exactly…. so i listen to the videos in my 21 secrets class and try to internalize what’s being taught. then i head for the studio and, with all my paraphernalia (cluttered!) around me (papers, photos, altered photos, stamps, paints, etc, etc) i just kind of see where it goes. i’m usually working on several things at once and don’t know until i start which ones will get another step added to them.
so far i’ve been totally ignoring those little voices wondering when i’m going to start doing some “real art”. they tend to get a little louder and more persistent when i see the beautiful pieces that all my artist friends have been posting in facebook. those same voices have the opinion that if i am not producing “real art” (as in canvases which are being hung on walls and offered for sale) then of course i am not a “real artist” either. sigh.
like i said, trying to ignore them for now (usually they hush up when i remind them that, after all, i’m taking a class so i’m just a student!!) and going with the intuitive approach. believing that someday, when it feels right, i may move in another direction…
thanks for visiting and for walking along side me on this journey – it makes all the difference!!
