My daughter was editing a new song that she’s been working on, so I borrowed some of her lyrics for the title of this journal spread. “One of these days… you’ll come back around.” She writes great lyrics. 😉
I made a quick video of some of my morning art journal work. You can see it on my FB page!
This quick sketch (above) in my mixed media notebook inspired me to work on the following smaller studies. Measuring only 2.5 x 3.5 inches, these tiny floral abstracts were completed in under 10 minutes. The goal was to achieve a sense of freedom and movement, uninhibited–without rules or too much thought process to get in the way of the creative mind. Children are so very great at this crayon-drawing type work. I guess that’s why children’s art is so appealing. Grown-ups need to play with their Crayolas more often.
(Acrylics, Portfolio Oil Pastels, Caran d’Ache Neocolors II crayons, and a Sharpie Black China Marker on paper)
I was super excited to find this rectangular shaped, soft art tote in Michaels Craft Store the other day. It is full of dividers and pockets and zippers… and well, it made perfect sense considering how many times I need to tote various little art tools and sketchbooks with me. Sometimes I’m just traveling from the art studio desk to the love seat in the living room, but it’s all about efficiency! LOL
An added bonus is that with the Michaels 40% coupon, it cost me only $12.00. Yeah, right? I know what all you art supply junkies are saying!!! Slam dunk decision in the crafting storage aisle! I haven’t even filled it to capacity yet, but I’m looking forward to my first test run when I have another art day at my sister’s house. On the move with my stash of goodies. FUN TIMES!!! 😉
