nobody but you


i've been wanting to sit down with my art journal all week.....and i finally treated myself to thirty minutes of creative time and pure bliss with my micron pens, pan pastels, watercolor pencils and a rubber stamp.  this journal is actually just a pad of 140 lb. watercolor paper that i tore the pages down to different sizes to add a little more interest.  
and......if you're looking for some great art journaling inspiration, julie fei-fan balzer has coordinated a fabulous group of artists with her "art journal every day" project......and today she's put together a magnificent post full of great tips for getting your art space organized!  thanks, julie!!!
hope you have a fun, creative weekend just being you!

Another gorgeous page, love the quote!

and here's one 'being me' today too, this week i've started an art journal, it will be a me-journal, no looking at and envying beautiful pages of certain others... ;) just my messy writing, glueing and painting and feeling happy with it.

Hi Lori! :D

What a beautiful page, and what great words!!! ... Sometimes it's so hard for me to want to be me, when everyone else is doing such fantastic stuff, and I wish I were them instead...but I'll try! You are so inspiring!!! ;)

I'm glad you're being you, Lori!As Christian comedienne and author Liz Curtis Higgs says, "If you don't do you, who will?"
I also so appreciate all the great artists/workshops/blogs you mention, because I have been inspired by so many of the ones you mention!
I also had fun looking at all the stamps you've carved, listed on etsy. Good for you! You sure "took your dream and ran for it!"

Do you have much of a cold winter in Florida?
Didn't mean to write so much, sorry. ;)
