discoveries......{elvie-encore-post #5}



i've been making blank journals for several years now, and as much as i love to create the journals, for some reason i have a mental block when it comes to creating in the journals.  i've been so inspired by many of you who are so good about filling your journals with creative play....and i've been thinking that it's time to jump on the bandwagon.  so....i finally took one of the many blank journals that i've had forever and made some marks on the first page.  it's not fine art. mainly, because i've discovered that i'm not a "fine artist".....i'm a "fun artist".   and i've also discovered that a little watercolor pencil, micron pen, doodle art, and ice cream sandwiches make for journal page happiness!


i'm currently on a little bloggy break......
this is an encore presentation of a post originally featured on august12, 2009

I love your blank journals, and we must be on the same wave length, because I also got our "your" blank journal the other day and stared at the white page. I didn't get as far as you did. Mental health is a good thing. I'd send you ice cream sandwiches if your weren't in Florida. lol

Your description of "fine artist" vs "fun artist" is brilliant for those of us who have no true artist skills. I just love your art. Based on this encore post you have truly come into your own artistry and I love what you do. Happy chillaxin...
