“The Nature of Things” Journal Progress

I like to name my art journals, but I’m not sure if this title will stick. Maybe I should call it “Wings on Things”.

Because EVERYBODY gets wings in here!

This is one of my page “re-do’s”. I pulled off the retro-kitsch decor and gave it a botanical fantasy makeover, like what I did in the rest of this journal.

I didn’t really like the direction it was going, so I decided to tear out pages I had already worked on and replaced them with pre-painted pages. I’ll find a use for the pages I tore out, that can actually be a lot of fun.

I filmed a video this week where I go into a little more detail about why and where my art journaling has been taking me lately. If you would like to see it, hit the link-ity link on the sidebar.

A mouse pondering how to use wings.

In a nutshell…life in the outside world isn’t all it’s cracked up to be right now. My little world is doing great, but as being an ingredient of the world at large, it’s hard to ignore everything that’s going on. This isn’t a place to pick sides, all sides seem to be struggling about something right now…so there you go.

This is a place where I create a little world of my own to visit when things get a bit grim. Much like I did when I was a kid, reading books, listening to music, and making art.

As a matter of fact, I decided to purchase some my favorite childhood books , and a few new ones, on the Audible app to listen to while I work on my journals, this has been so fun!

The other thing I have been working on this week is my creative spaces, yes I have more than one…what?!

Anyway, I started following “The Unexpected Gypsy” on YouTube, and she has really inspired me me to take all things creative a lot more seriously for my overall well being. I highly recommend making any changes in your environment to support your creative life. Any and all changes, large or small, will make an impact, so I’m going to just keep at it! I hope you will too!

Let me know in the comments how you are doing, I love hearing from you!

Until next time,

Have a great week

Thank you for the visit,

~Patty
