Working on my journaling pages, but I find I like the visual aspect more than the journaling/diary part of it. I've been a self talker (in my head usually, btw) ever since I can remember, so I work out things in the car or the shower or while I'm painting a background, so it seems to work itself out before it comes out on paper.
This set of pages is from Sarah Whitmire's journaling prompets, and I liked doing it because it was one word descriptions instead of being coherent on the page. I liked it because it opened up some visuals for me and I played then with some of the other layers. I can't say I'm totally thrilled with the outcome and this "beautiful" presentation - but it was fun and told myself when I started that it wasn't supposed to end up in a magazine anywhere.
I get really hung up on pretty and perfect and presentation, so I have to push myself to just play with concepts and techniques.
I'm going to try this again with different colors and different stencil shapes.
I also need to get back to the paper dolls portion of Sarah's prompts - to go into my hometown drawing. I've had too many ideas, so I just need to stick to one and get it done.
