In the Journal
I have a loose intention to create at least one journal spread a day, but I rarely do. Sometimes I'll do two spreads, occasionally four, and often days will go by when I haven't even done one. That's okay. There are so many options of things to do that it's often overwhelming ~ should I paint? stamp? stencil? collage? what colors? etc.
Another thing that stopped me from starting at first is that I "can't" draw -- which really means I don't want to take the time to draw. Many art journalers are terrific at drawing and I felt daunted by what seemed like the need for me to draw and watercolor paint in a journal.
The bottom line is, you can do whatever you want to do. You don't have to do what anyone else is doing. Make it your own in every which way. Whatever turns YOU on. That's what it's all about (and you thought it was the hokey pokey, right?)!
