Here's my journal page canvas for this week I don't know if it's obvious- but that big pink and orange thing on the right is supposed to be a Swing- the kind that you find at amusement parks, and the lumpy black thing at the bottom is a silhouette of a roller coaster.
I have to say that this is really hard- I mean, a journal is a place for me to just fool around, not necessarily make finished looking pieces, you know? (although sometimes they turn out good, in which case I post them, haha) But not only am I making a journal page NOT in a journal, but on a CANVAS- the pressure! So this is why I decided to name this one 'Play' - to remind myself that its all about playing ....I'm actually supposed to be *gasp* enjoying myself! It's not about perfection. I guess if it was I wouldn't have named my blog 'An Artful Passage' but rather 'I've Arrived- and have no need to learn anything more' (or IAAHNNTLAM) It's all about the journey, right?. And in this case, for me, its all about practicing, practicing practicing. I started this blog to make myself make art, and not just think about it and read books about making art.
Be sure to check out everybody's pages over at Dina's blog.
I'm including a little bonus photo- a picture of the journal page that my four year old daughter was working on while I worked on my canvas. I discovered it when I went to upload these pics..... she took the pictures herself while I went to get something! :)
