After seeing this:
for most of the morning, the internet is finally back on and I can hopefully get this post published.
For years now I have been fascinated by artist journals. I love Dan Eldon's book and spent quite some time trying to create something similar. Unfortunately it never worked out.
Then a friend of mine who is also an art teacher offered a journaling workshop (my man says that this word does not exist,
when I told him about the workshop, he understood that I am going to a channeling class and am talking to spirits...).
I jumped at the chance to finally learn how to do it!
On the first evening she told us to write about something we don't like, then cover the writing with paint, and then do something with the page. Ok.
I fought with the page for two hours, and what came out had nothing to do with the art journals of my imagination.
The next two sessions where not much better.
And then I finally relaxed, used lots of glitter glue, and began to have fun.
What I now produce still has very little to do with my aesthetic ideals, but it feels much more honest, and it has started to grow
Here some pages from my journal:
Lots of love to you, have a fantastic day!
