I sat down one Sunday after my house got broken into and took out my art journal. I’ve been in a funk - just haven’t been feeling like doing any artwork
All I could think of was, “I will not be an enabler anymore.” (Long story) And that’s what I wrote, over and over. Then I added blocks of paper, sprayed with my mini-misters (first time to use them; they’re great), scattered around some inexpensive cardboard flowers and glued down a princess that I saved from one of my “Year of the Fairy Tale” lessons.
Still, I wasn’t happy. Would I ever be?
I’d seen others scrape gesso on top of pages with credit cards, and change their artwork into backgrounds. So I tried that, except no gesso on my princess and flowers!
Later I added a “grass” bottom and wrote inside the blocks. And finally walked away from my art table. Moral of the story: remember to leave unwanted baggage in the background and move on.
