I began these pages over 6 months ago. First I drew the goat, isn't he a cutie? His photo was on a card someone gave me.
Later came the bird in the hand. Then I started doodling with my Staedtler triplus fineliners, thinking that I would fill up the page with doodles. But I soon lost interest and when I tried to gesso over the top it ended up all smudgie (the pens aren't waterproof).
The pages languished for months and months. I looked at them again a week or so ago and thought "I just want to write on those pages." Somehow I judged that as not 'good enough' and tried to think of a better idea.
What is wrong with just writing? It's a journal for Pete's sake (who is Pete anyway?)
I might write in more of my pages.
The writing is really cool in these pages. It is a quote from Pema Chodron out of her book "When Things Fall Apart". Highly recommended.
I am wanting to finish off my art journal. I have about 13 pages to finish up, and one that isn't started. I am ready to try a larger size. I want to start a new journal with my class next week. Woowee!
