I feel rather crazy, but I started a new art journal. I have never actually finished an art journal, I have several that I work on here and there. I don't work chronologically and I don't work in just one. But I decided I wanted a small journal with work that documents this last month before the Baby is born.
I started by cutting out paper for the pages and creating the backgrounds using this book:
Kaleidoscope: Projects and Ideas to Spark Your Creativity
by Suzanne Simanaitis
I worked with the article in this book by Juliana Coles. She basically walks you through several steps to create art to be more creative and free. I altered the instructions a bit for my purpose. The result is some really wild and fun backgrounds.
I'm trying to work with more of my own sketches and drawings.
I don't think I'll have many words in this art journal. I know what I feel when I look at this, but I don't feel the desire to explain it.
When I get done with all the pages, I'll bind up the loose pages and hopefully have something interesting from this last month of swollen stomach and hormones.
