Inspiration


artjournal_2_22_08



I got the most wonderful e-mail about a week ago from someone who viewed one of my youtube videos. It's nice to see that people are inspired by what I do and perhaps it encourages them to do it themselves. I cannot express enough how important it is to understand that there are things you do for yourself, not an audience and visual journaling is one of them. Pick up a pencil, pen, crayon, marker and just do something. One drawing leads to another, leads to a collage, leads to acrylic paints, leads to canvas and before you know it, you're wondering how in the world did you not express yourself artistically.

Here is a new journal page with a, "how I did it," youtube video to accompany it. I'm in the process of brainstorming a few other videos with the intention of encouraging others to journal. Well see how that pans out but until then, enjoy and please let me know what you think. I appreciate it all of your comments!
